Overview

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).
