What To Expect

At the beginning of the tour we will walk in the Old Town of Bucharest, on the steps of the most gruesome character in history – Vlad Dracula and discover his forgotten fortress. In the nearby caravanserai, Manuc’s Inn, an impressive former commercial settlement, learn how Bucharest evolved at the merger between two different worlds: the East and the West. Later, we will take you to find an eclectic mix of buildings like the National Bank of Romania, the Stavropoleos Monastery and the Villacrosse Passage and you will surely be charmed by the lively atmosphere in this quarter.

The tour will end with the story of the bloody revolution in December 1989 and the ultimate downfall of the Dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu, witnessing the birth of the democratic Romania.
