What To Expect

Palace of Parliament
In this Bucharest city tour at the Palace of Parliament or People’s House – you will learn how dangerous and damaging a totalitarian regime like communism can be for a nation. You will feel small seeing what pointless opulence and megalomania “the sleep of reason” can create.

Imagine you have the chance to see the second-largest administrative building on the planet, after the Pentagon, and that it will be an experience you will be able to share with your grandchildren.

Muzeul National al Satului "Dimitrie Gusti"
In this Bucharest city tour, you will visit The National Village Museum – in one place, you will see an embodiment of Romanian traditions and you will learn what it meant for Romanian villagers to have built an ecological and sustainable environment in their backyard. You will also get a glimpse of their simple and modest lifestyle, in social and spiritual harmony with their surroundings.

Book a guide in Bucharest and you will enter the universe of the traditional Romanian houses, large or small, made of wood and adobe, but also stone and other materials, from all areas of the country. You will also see national symbols such as the mill or the wooden church and you will learn how these treasures of spirituality and civilization have kept us united for thousands of years, without needing to invade other nations.

Piaka Revolukiei
In this private tour about communism, you can be transported back in time to the moment where the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was ousted, leaving behind the secrets of a great fortune and controversies about the state security service and his offshore accounts.

As we mentioned earlier, when we reach the Senate Palace, you will see the building which used to house the Central Committee of the Romanian Communist Party and the place where the Revolution of December 1989 started – a major historical event whereby, through human force and sacrifice, Ceausescu was removed from power.

• Admission Ticket Free

Ceausescu Mansion
The “Ceauşescu Mansion” was for a quarter of a century (1965-1989) the private residence of Nicolae and Elena Ceauşescu and of their children, Nicu, Zoia, and Valentin.

• Admission Ticket Free

Triumph Arch (Arcul de Triumf)
Much like any arch of triumph in the world, but most similar to the great Arc de Triomphe from Paris, this historical monument, measuring 27 m in height (about 16 times a person’s average height) carries a rich historical significance, especially since it has gone through numerous changes before reaching the design we see today.

Aside from its awe-inspiring grandeur and imposing structure, a symbol of the fight for freedom, with some luck, you will be able to admire four exhibits:

The Great War for the Unification of Romania (photography and film), The Heraldry of the Great Boyar Families (bronze effigies, photographs), The Arch of Triumph in Pictures (photographs, scale models), The Great Union of 1918

• Admission Ticket Free

Ateneul Roman
In a day trip at the Romanian Athenaeum you will find yourself in front of the most representative symbol of Romanian culture, often considered a symbol of Bucharest as well.

It is only natural that it should be one of the most important tourist attractions in Bucharest, and in Romania as well.

The fact that it is part of the European Heritage list (le Patrimoine Européen) of historical landmarks makes the Athenaeum one of the most visited attractions in Bucharest.

• Admission Ticket Free

Calea Victoriei
Here you can find culture, fashion and history at its finest: boyar houses, luxury stores, churches, restaurants, cafes, inns, museums, casinos, state institutions and statues, all of which are worth admiring and photographing.

The most important tourist attractions found here are: The Royal Palace, the Senate Palace or the Central Committee of the Romanian Communist Party, wherefrom Ceausescu fled the country during the Revolution, the National History Museum (formerly the Post Palace), The Lady’s Church, the CEC Palace (the CEC headquarters), the Palace of the National Military Circle, Cantacuzino Palace, hotels, restaurants, the Central University Library, and many others.
