Overview

This specialist guided tour of Bucharest centre concentrates on the recent history of the communist regime, which took hold in Romania in December 1947 and lasted until the bloody revolution of Christmas, 1989.

Learn about life under Nicolae Ceausescu, how I was sworn in allegiance to the great leader and his tyrannical wife, as one of Romania's 'Pioneers', Taught to load and fire an AK-74 assault rifle, (while at high school) and lived only a few miles from the heart of the uprising in Revolution Square. See my own mementos of this era and learn about life after the revolution and how Romania has changed to become the city you see today.
