This is a great book shop and you can spend ages in here whether you like books or not. The architecture is stunning, there's a lovely café on the top floor and there is a fabulous range of gifts as well as books.

Located in the Bucharest old town area, in a fabulous recently renovated old building, full of great books and staff. On the third floor there is a very nice coffee shop and restaurant, with an excellent view. Friendly staff, relaxing and very enjoyable place.
