You will visit 5 to 6 highlights that will help imagine and understand how the city grew up. After you will cross a major boulevard and you will get back into the Old City. During communist period Old City of Bucharest was decimated and split by grandiose urban projects. Today is one of the poorest areas in Bucharest and it's mostly inhabited by gypsies.

After finding out how the people were living under Ceasescu’s regime you will pass back to the 19th and 20th century Bucharest, the golden ages of its existence. You will discover a lot of places and their stories from the period when Bucharest was called Little Paris.
