What To Expect

Cotroceni Palace (Palatul Cotroceni)

Your private English speaking guide will take you first to the Cotroceni Palace. Build in the 1893 at the desire of the first king of Romania, Carol I, the palace it’s one of the oldest edifices in Bucharest. The palace, monastery and the church are reflecting a three hundred years of political, military, cultural and diplomatic influence.

We will continue our journey visting the Romanian Athenaeum. The exquisite Athenaeum is located in the heart of the capital and represents a majestic landmark for the Romanian culture and classical music tradition. Designed under the neoclassical architecture style, furnished with soft romantic touches, the place is depicting an end of century French architecture, a symbol for the delightful Belle époque.

Calea Victoriei
Further on, we will visit the Victoriei Avenue, where you will learn that during time, the Victoriei Avenue marched to a different drum and no surprisingly the history of Bucharest blends into this awe-inspiring boulevard.The wealth of architectural edifices is a treasure trove, with a complex of fair must-sees styles from neoclassical, baroque, Renaissance to Art Nouveau, eclectic or byzantine public buildings which are here to portray the cultural make-up of the capital’s most charming boulevard.

Last but not least, you will get a glimpse of the Bucharest old town Lipscani. It’s difficult to name a single aspect that makes Lipscani such an appealing place. It must be the gritty exuberance which is following you at every step or the enchanting architecture which tears your gaze away. There’s something new in the ‘old’ name of the bohemian town and this must be given by the vibrancy of this never-sleeping place which is the landing destination for every young soul.

After a full day of touring in the enchanting Belle Epoque era, bid your tour guide farewell after he will drop you at your hotel/hostel.
