What to expect

Learn how the communist time influenced the lives of the people of Bucharest and Romania. Discover the past of the city on our 4-hour tour. Although the Communist era did not preside over the city for a long time (about 40 years), it definitely left deep marks in the history of the place and in the souls and minds of the people living there.

This trip follows the most remarkable tourist attractions and cultural heritage sites in the center of the city. Together, you will learn about Bucharest’s Communist architecture and history, about the influence Communism had over its people and about notorious Ceausescu and his wife and everything they did to the city during their reign.
