On our itinerary, we will stop at the main communist tourist attractions or places like: Palace of Parliament, Revolution square, headquarter of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, the Memorial of Rebirth, University square, Ceaușescu’s house, but also to others that will be a total surprise.

A stop in front of the Palace of Parliament (the megalomaniac project of the great leader Nicolae Ceausescu) is a must for a communist tour in Bucharest.
