Det skal I lave

In this 3-hour journey, you will learn about the major landmarks and events in the Communist history of Bucharest, the violent beginnings of the Communist regime, the nationalization and forced demolition of thousands of houses, the People's House (currently, the Palace of the Parliament), dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his megalomania, and the bloody anti-Communist revolution of 1989.

The experience tells the story of the conflict between two worlds -- a brutalized Bucharest under the Communist regime, and the peaceful and prosperous Bucharest of the interwar period. You will learn about why Bucharest is such a striking mix of very different architectural styles, how each regime has left its mark on the city, how the city looked, and what its inhabitants went through in their daily lives under Communism. You will re-live the emotions of the anti-Communist Revolution and the fall of the Iron Curtain.

We'll explore:
> The magnificent Bragadiru Palace, and the abandoned Bragadiru Brewery
> Historic Cosbuc and Uranus neighborhoods
> Antim Monastery, the Nuns' Convent
> The Palace of the Parliament
> The former Boulevard of the Victory of Socialism
> Former headquarters of Securitate

We are a group of friends who are passionate about our city: Marius, Claudia, Andreea & Cristina. Together, we will help you get lost in Bucharest! We've started guiding in 2013, after having traveled extensively. We are doing this because we truly believe Bucharest is misunderstood and insufficiently promoted as a tourist destination, but also because we genuinely love learning new things about this city every day. Our favorite past-time is getting lost in the city, exploring streets, buildings, historic events and personal stories of its residents, and trying to make sense of everything for you, the traveler.

Diese Tour öffnet wirklich Perspektiven auf eine in vielen Bereichen noch lebendige Vergangenheit. Besonders gut: Ser konkrete Bezug auf Menschen, Gebäude, Topografie!

This is a must. Don’t double think it, just book this tour, it will bring you back to communist romania. Andrea was amazing, she has a lot of knowledge and insights to share with us. We had learned about Ceausescu in school, but nothing compared to what we learned on this tour. The tour starts and ends in strategic locations that help with the story telling. The communist era snacks are a great plus! I recommend 100% this tour.

Very good tour with Andreea. The tour really added value to my trip in Bucharest, raising and answering various questions about the lifestyle and vibe of the city. Feels way shorter than 3h - definitely recommended.
