Shopping centres

Bucur Obor

Sos. Colentina 2
Fri: 10:00-20:00
Sun: 10:00-14:00
Organised chaos selling everything from nylon tights to wide-screen TVs. Good selection of Gap clothing. Not that Gap know. Watch out for pickpockets.

Bucuresti Mall

Calea Vitan 55-59
Tel: 327 61 00
Fax: 320 92 09
Fri: 10:00-22:00
The novelty of Bucharest having a true shopping mall has yet to wear-off, and this place still attracts more visitors than actual shoppers. The supermarket (not bad) and the excellent 10-screen cinema are the crowd pullers, but the array of (mainly terrible) restaurants on the top floor is also popular. Has every chance of becoming a white elephant in the not too distant future.


Autostrada Bucuresti-Pitesti
Tel: 430 55 71
Fax: 430 55 91
Fri: 09:30-21:30
Sat: 09:00-21:30
Sun: 09:00-20:00
Without a doubt the best supermarket/shopping centre in Bucharest. Stocks top quality fresh meat, including hard-to-find lamb, a wonderful selection of fresh fish (including salmon), a wide range of fruit and vegetables, and a good delicatessen. Also offers clothes, computer software and household accessories.

Mon: 10:00-20:00
Fri: 08:30-20:00

Large and depressing department store that's good only for its textiles and fabrics on the top floor.


Sos. Vergului 20
Tel: 205 35 00
Fri: 09:00-22:00
Sun: 09:00-19:00

Jolie Ville Mall

Str. Erou Iancu Nicolae 103 bis
New mall in Baneasa/Pipera with lots of high-end retail outlets, including Versace, Boss, Max Mara etc. To find it turn left at the Police Academy on the way to the airport, and keep going, past the zoo. Jolie Mall is opposite Baneasa SA (if taking a taxi tell the driver Baneasa SA).

Mario Plaza

Calea Dorobantilor 172
Tel: 230 47 71
Fri: 10:00-21:00

Lots of clothes shops and a couple of characterless cafes all under one bland roof.


Tel: 236 14 00
Fri: 06:00-21:00
Sun: 08:00-18:00
You'll need a company membership card to get in to this cash and carry, but once in you can buy 50 boittles of whatever for the price of 30. Open 06:00 - 21:00, Sun 08:00 - 18:00. Also in the Militari and Voluntari districts.

Plaza Romania

B-dul Timisoara 26
Tel: 407 84 16
Fax: 319 50 51
Romania's newest - and largest - shopping centre opened at the end of October last year in a rather rundown area of the city. It has lots of big name stores you will not find anywhere else, including Sunglasses Hut and Zara.

The Grand Avenue

Calea 13 Septembrie 90 (Bucharest Marriott Grand Hotel)
Tel: 403 40 30
Fax: 403 40 40
If you're in the Marriott area, the Grand Avenue is worth a stroll, especaillyas it houses the only real foreign-language book shop in town, Salingers .

Unirea Shopping Centre

Piata Unirii 1
Fri: 09:00-21:00
Sun: 09:00-15:00
Once a showpiece of Socialism, this huge department store is now the best shopping centre in the centre of the city. There are fashion stores on the first and second floors while the electronics and household appliance shops on floors three and four are also worth a visit. There's a Body Shop and McDonald's on the ground floor, and the excellent La Fourmi supermarket can be found in the basement.

World Trade Plaza - Shopping Gallery

B-dul Expozitiei 2
Tel: 202 44 50
Fri: 08:00-20:00
