This bookshop not far from piata Romana is truly a pleasure to be in and a sure-fire way to kill time on a rainy Romanian day. A small cafe and gallery bookends two floors of books, travel guides, compact disks (30-80 lei), DVDs (40-55 lei), cards, calendars and gifts. A great place to pick up CDs by local bands, Carturesti also has an extensive English language fiction and art book selection. The staff all speak English and are suspiciously helpful. Students with a valid ISIC card will enjoy a discount on their purchase.

A place kind of unique in bucharest. It will definitely suit you if you search for something different and a very friendly atmosphere.
My favourite place in Bucharest!
My favourite way to kill a few hours, browsing through a bookshop, and this one was great with an excellent selection. Good stuff!
Carturesti is the perfect antidote to a rainy day. You could spend all day in there, honest. And if you do get bored, there's actually a movie theatre next door.
