When I was in college (many years ago, shhh!) Bucharest was full of second hand bookshops. As a student it was the perfect solution for all those recommended reading lists or for making some extra money by selling last year’s manuals. It was also a favorite pastime for bookworms who could spend hours hunting for new finds.
The sad part is that only a few of them have survived until today. The happy part is that you’ll get to visit one of the survivors and my personal favorite: Antic Exlibris.
I could (and I have) spend hours browsing through everything from cookbooks to classical literature, art albums, comics and travel journals. Unlike the other few bookshops, this one has almost exclusively English books so you can also take something home with you, not only enjoy the smell of old books ( it’s not just me right?).
See you in the art section!
