Know More about this tour

This tour reveals the conflict between two worlds – Bucharest under the Communist regime and the relatively, peaceful and prosperous Bucharest of the inter war period. You will learn why Bucharest is such a striking mix of very different architectural styles, how each regime has left its mark on the city, how the city looked during the communist period and what it was like for people living in communist Romania.

Your guide will help to bring to life the anti-communist revolution and the fall of the Iron Curtain. You will enter lesser known charming inter war neighbourhoods, saved from the communist urban remodelling, as well as the remains of the Uranus Neighbourhood. You’ll learn about the most spectacular pieces of architecture and events of the communist history of Bucharest as well as the violent beginnings of the communist regime, the nationalization and forced demolition of homes, the Palace of Parliament, the Ceausescu family and the bloody anti-communist revolution of 1989.

The tour includes a short break at a cafe on the way, where guests can purchase drinks or snacks (own expense).

  • Very knowledgeable guide

  • This was great! Really interesting information, friendly, patient guide. Shed a insightful light on our 2 day trip in Bucuresti. Would highly recommend!

  • Very informative, always interesting, well paced, I thoroughly recommend

  • Well versed guide, very interesting and informative. Would have preferred not to have the mid tour stop maybe only 10-15 minutes would have sufficed.

  • A wonderful tour. Guide was intelligent and knowledgeable. Stories of early communism in Romania, Ceausescu power and excesses, role as Communist maverick, his wife, his destruction of much of old Bucharest, the revolt that threw him out all very well orchestrated with path of tour and visuals...down to the artillery shell damage high on a few still unrepaired buildings. Lingering effects today were interestingly integrated.

  • it was an excellent tour. Really enjoyed it. very much 5 star rating.

  • Very informative, vivid description of the rise and fall of communism in Romania. The guide also gave an interesting view into life under communism. Highly recommend.

  • Really informative and lucky enough to get a personal tour. Will be bringing students back as so useful to current A level and IGCSE History students.

  • Guide was great. Enthusiastic and willing to answer all our questions. Learned a lot.
