During this 3-hour walking tour you'll discover the major landmarks and events of Bucharest’s communist past, including the brutal beginnings of the regime, plus the nationalization and forced demolition of thousands of houses.
What to Expect
This 3-hour 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’ll learn why Bucharest is such a striking mix of different architectural styles, how each regime 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.
Learn about the violent beginnings of the communist regime and the nationalization and forced demolition of homes. See the impressive Palace of Parliament and hear all about the Ceausescu family and the bloody anti-communist revolution of 1989.
You’ll visit lesser-known, charming inter-war neighborhoods saved from communist urban re-modelling, and see the remains of the Uranus neighborhood as well.
The tour includes a short break at a café, where you can enjoy drinks or snacks (at your own expense).
