Overview

The buildings of a city can unlock its history, if you know where to look. On this 3-hour walking tour, a guide will take you through the streets of Bucharest and explain how the architecture relates to the Communist era. As you walk, learn about Communism in Romania and how it changed the shape of the city.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in central Bucharest for a 3-hour walking tour through the city’s Communist history. As you stroll through Bucharest’s streets, learn about the architectural styles and how different regimes influenced the look of the city.

Exceptional Tour

My co-worker and I had a day layover in Bucharest, decided to do this tour last minute. This was very informative and real. The guide spent 3 hours walking through Bucharest discussing history and people. It was money well spent!!!
