i visited the village museum for a morning and the Ceacescus' Palace for 2 hours.

The village museum in Bucharest is absolutely fascinating .It gives a great idea of rural living through the ages and a real insight into the materials and techniques used to construct dwellings in the past.
Wood was obviously the main material used to great effect and the standard of craftsmanship is very high . Each dwelling is looked after by an individual who really takes pride in the maintenance .The University in Bucharest takes a keen interest from the heritage point of view .
There were beautiful high quality handcrafts made by traditional craftsmen on display..such as miniature paintings on glass and painted eggs ... The tour guides from UNZIPROMANIA Diana and Christiian were very professional and displayed a very deep knowledge of the site . They were also very friendly and accommodating ..
Highly recommended

I visited The palace built by Ceacescu between 1983 and 1989 with about 20,000 workers ..
The building with the second largest area in the world after the Pentagon again with superb craftsmanship ..The facts and figures are staggering ...
This was an official tour of the building still partly used by the present government and I only had the chance to see a tiny proportion of the whole building
It was however was a fascinating insight into recent history .
Bucharest is a beautiful city with splendid Architecture lots of greenery , very nice shops and restaurants .The people are hospital. It even has a small Arc De Triomphe. and was once named Little Paris .
It is very good value

UNZIPROMANIA (Diana and Christian) were extremely flexible and even took me to the airport without any extra charge ..I will be returning as soon as i can to take a further varied tours to other parts of the country with them ...
