A communist tour of Bucharest is a must do because the capital has been the main scene for most of the main events related to communism. Here is where our last king was forced to abdicate, where the feared Secret Police was created, where Ceausescu decided to build his new city by demolishing the old one, but also where he had his first and his last speech. During a 3 hours walking tour you will find out all the details related to communism as a doctrine and how it shaped the life of people by slowly stripping them of pride, individuality, religion and cultural identity. We will also visit important communist landmarks and you can observe, with the help of old pictures, how communism managed to change completely the aspect and architecture of Bucharest. You can see, touch and even take pictures with communist relics, you get the chance to taste an original communist sweet and you will receive an authentic traditional souvenir at the end of the tour.
