Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: In this 3-hour walking tour of Communism, with English-speaking guide, you'll learn about the major landmarks and events in the Communist history of Bucharest, the violent beginnings of the Communist regime, the nationalization and forced demolition of thousands of houses, the People's house, the Ceausescu family and their megalomania, and the bloody anti-Communist revolution of 1989. To get to the tour starting point from Unirii Square, you need to cross the Unirii Boulevard (the large boulevard with fountains), and climb the hill that leads to the Patriarchy. (car access is usually restricted, as this is a pedestrian area). Pre-booking is required at least 2 hours in advance on our website.

We were thrilled with the communist tour of Bucharest today which was extremely inspiring. Our tour guide, Marius, was fantastic, so knowledgeable and gave us a real insight into life under the communist regime - we couldn't have asked for more. The Jewish tour, which I went on a few weeks ago also comes highly recommended. Without a doubt the best and most informative tour my friend and I have been on in Europe.

Thank Elizabeth O

I've booked this tour for the speakers at The Power of Storytelling, an annual narrative journalism conference that gathers some of the best storytellers in the world. The tour was full of historical information, but also of less known interesting facts about the Communist era in Romania. I recommend this experience to both foreigners and Romanians.

Thank Andreea V
