It is quite safe. No touristic places needs to be avoided.
Just don't go in areas like Ferentari for instance.
Anyway no touristic atraction there.
You can take the touristic bus as well.
And probably you'll like to have a trink in the "old city center" or go in a club like fratelli, or a nice restaurant (are plenty of those :)

The touristic places are safe and are generally close to the city center. Nothing special you should be worried about.
It is recommendable to avoid the city periphery, neighborhoods like Salajan, Ferentari, Rahova. But if your trip is strictly touristic, it is unlikely that you get close to these neighborhoods. over 8 years ago
If you are arriving at the airport and using a taxi to get into town, go to the departures area to get one, and look for the ones that have the prices on the side of the taxi. Bucharest is a safe city, the people are nice and many speak English, just be careful like you would in any large city. over 6 years ago
