The basic tour is the best option if you want to get a very informative overview of Romania’s capital, Bucharest. For approximately 3 to 4 hours your guide will walk and talk you through some of Bucharest’s most important historical and cultural monuments, as well as the city s economical and political landmarks.
The tour is going to take you along the famous Victory Boulevard – the first wood paved road in the country-, built at the wish of Romania’s famous martyr ruler, Constantin Brâncoveanu. You will have the chance to visit beautiful palaces (former royal residences) designed in the neoclassical style, the University of Bucharest, the Romanian Atheneum, the Vilacrosse Passage and many more.
An important part of the tour is dedicated to the communist era and the changes that have occurred during this time. You will visit the Revolution Square (the place where Ceauşescu held his famous last speech on the 22nd of December 1989 that angered the crowds so much that he was forced to flee by helicopter) and the “People’s Palace”, the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon, the place where Ceauşescu intended to house all of the country’s institutions.
Furthermore, you will not only get the opportunity to visit some of the city’s most important and beautiful churches, but also to learn more about the orthodox religion and the Romanian traditions.
