Description

Romania has been a communist country for more than 40 years, between 1948 and December 1989. Nicolae Ceausescu became the General Secretary of the Romanian Communist Party in 1965 and the president of Socialist Republic of Romania in 1974. 15 years later, he was removed from power and executed after a violent revolution during the winter of 1989. While nowadays Romania is a democracy, the communist period remained interesting as well as controversial.

Follow us on this trip through Bucharest to reveal the “great accomplishments of the golden era” and to hear the story of people who built it. You will see the first communist building in Bucharest, the Revolution Square with the balcony where the dictator gave his last speech, the majestic “House of People” and Primaverii Palace - the former residence of the presidential couple.

The itinerary depends on your hotel’s location, but it will include: Free Press Square – The Arch of Triumph – Victoriei Square – Calea Victoriei – Revolution Square (Romanian Atheneum, Revolution’s Memorial) – The Palace of Parliament – Union Square – University Square – Romana Square – Victoriei Square – Charles de Gaulle Square – Primaverii Palace (the former residence of the dictator).
