This fascinating minibus tour takes you to places that most expats living in the north and tourists never see: typical communist-era neighborhoods that really haven’t changed much since communism; as well as the seats of power and the edifices of a collapsed ideology.
Gain insight into how modern Romanians live in a city that is a relic and daily reminder of its history.

Our expert guide (a Bucharest native) will take you on a journey to deep within the heart of the city’s cultural and political history: fifty years of communism, twenty years of democracy, and the “Golden Age” of the interwar period have all shaped the city in different and profound ways.

After visiting many engaging sites, neighbourhoods and a traditional market, we will have an open discussion for your questions and comments in a bar/restaurant in city center for approx. 45 minutes. The discussion will be moderated by our guide.
