Know More about this tour

This is the perfect introductory tour for every newcomer.
Bucharest is Romanias vibrant capital city filled with a mishmash of grand historic buildings, brutal Communist apartment blocks and emerging 21st century designs.
Your tour will begin in the political center of the city, Revolution Square - witness to many of the most important events in Romanian history like our dictators' last speech in decmeber. Surrounding the square are several other notable landmarks, including the former Royal Palace, Atheneum Concert hall and Athenee Palace Hilton, the heart of espionage and intrigue in the years between the wars.
Leaving the square you will then head south along 'Victory Street' , named after the spectacular victory of the new Romanian nation in the 1871 War of Independence, passing by the most important and spectacular landmarks of the inter-war period, including the 'Telephone Palace', Military Circle and former National Theatre, as well as the beautiful church of Kretulescu, one of the most famous in Bucharest.
You will then head into the oldest part of Bucharest : the narrow streets, paths and passageways of The Old Town. This is the heart of medieval Bucharest, the literal crossroads between East and West, where Ottoman Pashas rubbed shoulders with Transylvanian Princes, and the city was a mosaic of different cultures and buildings: churches and mosques, princely courts and merchant's houses, marketplaces and ottoman seraglios. Among the many sights and stories of The Old Town are lavish dining, princely courts and opulent interiors, the exquisite calm of an orthodox monastery, and the great wooden inn of 'Hanul Lui Manuc', offering captivating glimpses into an earlier time.
