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.

On the tour, we cover sights and attractions such as:

  • Revolution Square

  • Former Headquarters of the Communist Party

  • University of Architecture

  • Coral Synagogue

  • Bucharest Court of Appeal

  • Palace of Parliament

Elena was our tour guide. She was on time for the start of the meeting and made everyone feel welcome start away. Her knowledge and passion of her city is commendable and my friend and I enjoyed our tour. Would definitely recommend Elena and the tour to anyone

Best to just call them to ask whether the tour is happening or not, clearly the website is not updated. We were 4 people who came there for nothing..

I am glad I booked the tour, I learned about the city and country’s history. I had a wonderful tour guide, Elena. She makes the tour interactive by asking questions. Similarly to the other tour, Elena pointed out details or took us to areas I would otherwise have missed by myself. Great tour!
