Bucharest: The Ashes of Communism Private Walking Tour

2. Bucharest: The Ashes of Communism Private Walking Tour

On this private walking tour, you will discover a city marked by strong contrasts, with two areas perfectly depicting the opposition of two eras: the massive Communist Civic Center, an empty shell admired mostly by foreign tourists, and the beautifully-restored Old City, with its Belle Époque atmosphere. All of the historical treasures of Bucharest had to be rebuilt or restored to hide the marks of bullets, to hide scars that have not yet healed in nearly 3 decades since the fall of the regime and the bloody revolution. This tour takes you through 45 years of Communism, allowing you to see beyond Bucharest’s colorful present: learn about Stalin and his monstrous enslavement, the genocide of the Kgb’s Secret Police, the Siberian deportations of farmers, and more. Your guide will show you old photos to explain how the city used to look, how people dressed, worked and lived. Discover the world of Bucharest behind Stalin's Iron Curtain.

You’ll also get an insight into the many controversies behind the House of the People. The tour will end at a grand traditional inn with beer and some local snacks.
