What You'll Do
  • Learn about the rise and fall of the Romanian dictator Ceausescu.
  • Visit Communist-era landmarks to see the regime's distinctive architectural style.
  • Hear stories about daily life under Communist rule.
  • Visit political memorials and sites that played a key role in the 1989 revolution.
In this 3-hour walking communism tour, you'll discover the major landmarks and events of the communist period in Bucharest, including the brutal beginnings of the regime, plus the nationalization and forced demolition of thousands of houses.
What to Expect
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 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 find out about the violent beginnings of the communist regime and the nationalization and forced demolition of homes.  You'll also see the impressive Palace of Parliament, the Ceausescu family and the bloody anti-communist revolution of 1989. For an even more diverse experience, you'll enter lesser known charming inter-war neighborhoods saved from the communist urban re-modelling, as well as the remains of the Uranus Neighborhood. The tour includes a short break at a cafe on the way, where guests can purchase drinks or snacks (own expense).
