Full description
Start your day in the morning and discover together with your professional guide the wonders of Bucharest, also called The Little Paris of the East. This panoramic city tour includes stops and history lessons at three very important sites: Revolution Square, Constitution Square and equally impressive Military Academy. Discover the history of the Romanians from the time of the Roman Empire, Middle Ages and Vlad the Impaler and walk your way through Monarchy and the dark Communist times of recent history. Drive by sites like: Romanian Arch of Triumph, House of Free Press, Kiseleff Avenue with beautiful French style villas, Embassy Row, Romanian Peasant's Museum, Victory Square, Officer's Club, Cismigiu Garden, Medical School, Opera Square, Fountains Avenue and Military Academy. Next you see the open air Village Museum which will provide you with a unique experience and will give you a glimpse in the life of the Romanian peasants from more than 100 years ago. This museum is particularly impressive because all the houses were taken from their original locations and rebuilt here in Bucharest almost one century ago. In the afternoon you leave crowded Bucharest behind and visit Mogosoaia Palace. Imagine that one of the wealthiest families in Romania managed to spend almost all their fortune in order to restore this wonderful place. Take a trip back in time to a more elendant era and find all the secrets of this place together with your guide. From here you are driving north from the city in order to see a place surrounded in myth and history. The Snagov Monastery is the supposed burial place of a famous Romanian ruler: Vlad the Impaler, also known as Dracula. The monastery is on a small island in the middle of a beautiful lake.

Very informative, engaging and fun!

Stefan was very well informed and he gave us a very informative insight into the history and culture of Romania..he never hurried us through the trip and also extended it for us quite a bit! He ended the tour by reserving us a place at Caru cu bere at a nice little spot..I have also booked the Transylvanian tour via him and I think it would be excellent as well!
