  Hanul cu Tei, Bucharest
by Andraf

A lot of antiques stores seem to have flourished in the historic quarter in particular on Lipscani and Covaci Streets (or maybe they were there for a long time but I didn't notice them). Since I'm not into buying antiques I can't say if the prices are high or not, you'll have to judge for yourself. From what I saw you can find almost any type of artwork like paintings, sculptures, icons, etching, engraving, jewelry, tapestries, carpets etc. A nice place to visit, even if you don't plan on buying something is Hanul cu Tei Complex, a former caravanserai built in 1833. Nowadays a rectangular courtyard lined with antiques shops the place retains some of the 19C atmosphere. The courtyard links the Lipscani and Blanari Streets. They also hold auctions here. Even if you walk away with nothing, this is still an interesting experience.
