Shopping in Bucharest

Handmade costumes and age-old antiques fill the shelves of the small shops that cluster in Lipscani. Mingle with Bucharest's literary set at atmospheric bookshops like Carturesti, and find chic dresses in upmarket fashion boutiques on Calea Victoriei. The stalls of Piata Amzei Market sell fresh fruit and vegetables from all over Romania. The Peasants' Folk Shop is best for unique souvenirs. Most shops close at 6pm, bigger stores and malls are open longer.
