Bucharest In-Depth Half-Day Tour

by Bucharest Tours
  • Free cancellation
  • No booking or credit card fees

Bucharest is a fascinating city of contrasts with an incredibly diverse history waiting to be explored. Discover both the old and new architecture and landmarks on this in-depth tour that takes you to major highlights of this city, which is located on the banks of the Dambovita River.

See the world’s largest parliament building, the neoclassical Palace of Parliament built in 1997. Journey past the Casa Presei, the press house that dates back to Stalin’s reign in Moscow. Drive past the Arch of Triumph, which commemorates Romania’s independence. Learn about the history surrounding the scenic Unirii Boulevard, often compared to Paris’s Champs-Elysees, but clearly differing with its socialist-realism architecture lining the streets.

Then visit the Village Museum, one of the oldest and largest outdoor museums in Europe, with a fascinating insight into Romanian everyday life and culture. This open-air museum features more than 60 original Romanian houses, farms, windmills and churches from as far away as Transylvania.
