Know More about this tour

After the second world war, Romania became a communist country and it remained under a communist regime until the violent revolution of 1989. For more than 40 years, the country's leaders were working hard to build a modern world - literate and industrialized with all the benefits of the modern world, but without its injustices. Unfortunately, things turned out quite differently: the measures taken to modernize the country (industrialization, collectivization, etc) sacrificed the interest and welfare of its population.

Come on this trip through Bucharest to learn about the “great accomplishments of the golden era” and to hear the story of people who built it. You will see the first communist building in Bucharest, the Revolution Square with the balcony where the dictator gave his last speech in December 1989, the ambitious “House of People” and the burial place of the presidential couple.

The tour usually lasts around 4 hours including the visit at the Parliament Palace. The standard visit at the Parliament Palace is around 1 hour and 15 minutes. Please note that sometimes the Parliament Palace is closed for conferences without prior notice.

  • Very interesting tour. We were picked up on time and our guide was knowledgeable and flexible. We learnt about communist Romania from an insiders perspective.

  • We were picked up on time at our hotel. Valentin our guide was dynamic and very knowledgeable about Bucharest and the communist era. The tour itself was very interesting. We learned a lot of things and we saw the most important communism-related sites. The visit at the Palace of Parliament was very interesting as well. We recommend this tour.

  • Brilliant. Picked-up spot on time. Valentin was a great guide- very knowledgeable about Bucharest. Palace of Parliament is extraordinary. We had a guided tour which was great and only cost 25 lei. You had to pay extra to take pictures. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.
