Bucharest: Private City Tour Guided Experience

Bucharest: Private City Tour Guided Experience

Explore the historic center of Bucharest, once dubbed “Little Paris,” on a private 5-hour sightseeing tour. See the contrast between the wide boulevards and the tiny streets of unique charm. Best observed in the jumble of lanes of Lipscani, between Calea Victoriei, Boulevard Bratianu, Boulevard Regina Elisabeta, and the Dambovita River, the once-glamorous residential area and old city center is now being refashioned into an upscale neighborhood. Continue to the monumental Parliament Palace. Built by Communist Party leader Nicolae Ceausescu, it is the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon. The extravagant interior is a riot of crystal chandeliers, mosaics, oak paneling, marble, gold leaf, stained-glass windows, and floors covered in rich carpets. In contrast, a visit to the Village Museum on the shores of Lake Herastrau in Herastrau Park, provides a fascinating glimpse into Romanian rural history. Founded by royal decree in 1936, the outdoor museum is the largest in Europe at some 30 acres. Discover an enchanting collection of 50 buildings that represent the design of Romania's rural architecture through the centuries.

Although a relatively young settlement (approximately 600 years) and at the crossroad of several cultural influences, Bucharest doesn't cease to surprise the new arrival with its hues. Bustling and chaotic, colorful and austere, modern and decay make and intriguing mix that can only be understood with local help. We start in its birthplace with the auberges, taverns and bookstores. A short glimpse at the 1980s with their utopian architecture. On to the financial district and its end of the century architecture. Continue to the central crossroad of the University. Revolution, National Art Gallery, the concert hall of the Atheneum. We end with a metro ride to King Michael Park, Triumphal Arch, Palace of Free Press and Village Museum. Quick lunch/ snack break in between. Long and fruitful day. Highly flexible and customizable.
