This Bucharest Full Day City Tour gives you the best opportunity to see the most important sites in Bucharest enjoying a panoramic city tour passing by important landmarks and take a tour in the Parliament Palace, Cotroceni Palace and the Village Museum.
What to Expect
Start your day in the morning and discover together with your professional guide the wonders of Bucharest, also called little Paris of the East. The panoramic city tour includes stops and history lessons at three very important sites: Revolution Square, Constitution Square and equally impressive Military Academy. Discover the history of the Romanians from the time of the Roman Empire, Middle Ages and Vlad the Impaler and walk your way through Monarchy and the dark Communist times of recent history.
Next on the agenda is a visit to Ceausescu's mad dream - The Parliament Palace. Discover the second largest building in the world - formerly known as the People's Palace. Take a tour inside together with a professional English speaking guide from the Parliament in order to get a full taste of Ceausescu's heritage.
From this communist marvel you are going together to visit the Presidential Palace - Cotroceni Palace. Here the local guide is going to show you around one of the most charming palaces of Bucharest. This is a great time for you to find out more about Romanian Monarchy - a part of history that Ceausescu wanted to erase from the common memory of the Romanians.
After the visit you will take a walking tour through the Old City and find out more about the man that founded Bucharest - Vlad the Impaler aka Dracula that established his royal court here in the 15th century. Next see the open air Village Museum, which will provide you with a unique experience and will give you a glimpse in the life of the Romanian peasants from more than 100 years ago. This museum is particularly impressive because all the houses were taken from their original locations and rebuilt here in Bucharest almost once century ago.
