Discover the main landmarks of communist history in Bucharest with our passionate local guides. We will start the tour in the Revolution Square by the former headquarters of the Romanian Communist Party and continue off the beaten path to see another face of Bucharest that we do not show on the other tours we offer.
During the walking tour we will share stories of communism in Romania, pros and cons of the period, the relation between the communist regime and religion, industry, labour, economy, culture and everyday life of the people. We try to be objective in presentation, but share true family stories and bring “nostalgic” items of the period.
We’ll walk from the Revolution square to the Jewish quarter and end the tour in front of Parliament Palace. Be prepared to explore the city in an almost 3-hour long walk while exploring life under the socialist regime and visiting sites that played a role in communist days.
