Removed districts[edit]

I removed this pointless list of districts that was in the almost pointless district section. But I leave it here in the hope that someone will eventually use it when this article gets to a decent size and needs to be split off to districts. Tim 02:38, 20 August 2006 (EDT)

In alphabetical order, these neighbourhoods are:

  • 1 Mai
  • Aviatiei
  • Balta Albă
  • Băneasa
  • Berceni
  • Centru (divided in Victoriei, Romană, Universitatii and Unirii)
  • Chitila
  • Colentina(Europa shop)
  • Cotroceni
  • Crângaşi
  • Drumul Taberei
  • Ferentari
  • Floreasca
  • Gara de Nord
  • Giuleşti
  • Giurgiului
  • Iancului
  • Militari
  • Obor
  • Orzari
  • Pantelimon
  • Primăverii
  • Rahova
  • Titan
  • Vitan


I know that for peasan children it's hard to compute that the new Leu means precisely 10 000 old ones, but for clarity's sake - the National money equals LEU and not RON, ROL or whatever you might call it. Maybe it was useful for your village general store to differentiate between the two currencies some time ago, but there is NO MORE confusion. And there shouldn't be.

Speaking English[edit]

Quoting from the text : "Most educated people born after about 2000 will speak reasonably good English " People born after 2000 are at most 9 years old and are hardly educated, let alone good English speakers. There is a correction to be made there.

Please just go ahead and change the sentence. --Burmesedays 21:38, 19 January 2010 (EST)

Short term rental apartaments in Bucharest - clarifications[edit]

Hi, I have seen that you consider the listing of short term rental apartaments not complying with the policy of Wikitravel (for Bucharest). I find that hard to grasp, because since we started the business 6 years ago, many foreigners who came to Bucharest to work or travel, and have chosen to use our services ( and other companies' as well ) really appreciated they could use this type of accommodation while they were here. This is really a very competitive way of reducing your costs and increase the comfort while visiting Bucharest ( short or long term ). Isn't this what every traveller wants ? - to visit a place, but do it while they minimize their expenses ? If this Bucharest page on Wikitravel wouldn't have a section for accommodation, I wouldn't mind your refusal to allow this publicity. But not accepting it, while allowing other types of accommodation businesses shown up here, seems like discrimination to me and is against the spirit of this project. I asked you if you've ever been to Bucharest and used this type of services and it seems it was difficult to answer it.

We have a lot of big clients ( multinational companies) that use our services and this idustry is quite developed in Bucharest. If you look at our website you will see we have a big portofolio. Does this ring a bell ? If you continue to unlist this type of accommodation, I think the one that should be blacklisted should be you, not the companies that try to enlist themselves here.

Please think again about it and allow the enlisting, so that people can see a complete list of choices when it comes to Bucharest accommodation.

As outlined in the apartment listing policy, there is no argument here that short term apartment rentals are a common accommodation option for travelers to Bucharest, nor any indication that the user in question wants to list apartment rentals for any purpose other than to gain visibility for his/her own business, so I see no reason based on the argument presented to make a policy exception in this case. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:04, 10 June 2010 (EDT)

Unless you de-list all the hotels on this page , I consider it an unresolved issue, because I cannot agree that a person can censor a form of accommodation ( against others) just on the basis that he thinks that "there is no argument here that short term apartment rentals are a common accommodation option for travelers". May I ask you where do you take your arguments from ? Have you ever visited Bucharest in the first place to know what is relevant and what is not ? Short term rental is a very good option for a traveller to take into account when visiting a place and especially in Bucharest, where there are very profesional companies doing this business. On top of that, our company owns all the properties, so it is not an agregator, it is like a hotel with the rooms spreaded in the city Downtown.

Please review your attitude towards this and allow the listing. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

By my count you've now been provided at least ten pointers to our apartment listing policy, and from your responses it seems you refuse to read that guideline. As a result I don't think there is anything else we can say to you other than you have thus far not come close to meeting the standards of that guideline. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:35, 10 June 2010 (EDT)

Stay safe[edit]

I have never been to Bucharest, but the "Stay Safe" section reads like an endless jabber of unfounded nonsense. And it's quite racist too. "Don't talk to anyone, especially not Gypsies". Wtf? And sentences like "There's nothing there for you as a traveler, so don't go there". -- Really? I think I'll decide if I find a neighborhood interesting, not someone who can't write comprehensively.

  • I've been several times to Bucharest and I agree , there are MANY interesting things in those neighborhoods, at list for a traveler who wants to see another side of the city. The sentence about gypsies is quite racist. As in most big cities (Paris, NYC and so on) people asks money to tourist-look alike people. In Bucharest some of the beggars are gypsies, some are not, so it is pointless to point an ethnic group.


  • I would like to note that this section is extremely cautious. I'm a 28 year-old woman and I've been living in Bucharest for the last 10 years and I have never had a issue. As in any major city, you have to be a bit careful with your belongings, but nothing out of the ordinary. Maybe I'll get a bit of time to propose a alternative to this section.Sabsabsab (talk) 10:31, 18 May 2016 (EDT)
Yes, we would really appreciate a revision to the information! IBcaldera (talk) 14:55, 18 May 2016 (EDT)

Activ Card in the express buses between airport and the city[edit]

Enrich the last paragraph of the express buses to and from the airport with Activ card option adding the exact costs and advice for using it by two travellers for the above route but also for the city itself.--Dimitrish81 (talk) 02:31, 29 April 2016 (EDT)

Adding new Apps section[edit]

I would like to add a section about what apps are offering services in Bucharest. In the last few years a huge number of apps have appeared in Bucharest allowing people to do things more easily. Anyone visiting or staying will need to know them.

Any objections to adding this new section?
