What you'll do

The tour starts in Revolution Square , with its many landmarks that tell the story of the city’s turbulent past: including the former Royal Palace (now the National Museum of Art), the Athenaeum, and the University of Bucharest Library. We’ll head towards the Archives, a building that still bears the bullet holes of the 1989 revolution and continue our walk to the Old Town to witness firsthand the effects of the nationalization process led by the Communist Regime over the beautiful turn of the century architecture of Bucharest. Over to Constitution Square next, where will see a stunning example of larger-than-life communist ideals at the Palace of the Parliament. We will venture behind megalomaniac structures surrounding the Palace of the Parliament and find remnants of the former city, visit some of the famous moved churches of Bucharest, for a change of scenery climb Patriarchy Hill and experience firsthand the massive changes the city has undergone. Next up, we hop on the tram to one of the communist neighborhoods of the city - living examples of true socialist architecture. Hidden among the concrete, find Carol Park and the former burial site of the first communist leaders. Cross the street to see the Heroes of the Revolution memorial and cemetery and finish the tour with tales of the 1989 revolution that ended the communist regime in Romania and finish in Unirii Square.
