Bucharest: The "Last Days of Communism" Tour

1. Bucharest: The "Last Days of Communism" Tour

Romania has been a communist country for more than 40 years, between 1948 and December 1989. Nicolae Ceausescu became the General Secretary of the Romanian Communist Party in 1965 and the president of Socialist Republic of Romania in 1974. 15 years later, he was removed from power and executed after a violent revolution during the winter of 1989. While nowadays Romania is a democracy, the communist period remained interesting as well as controversial. Follow the guide on this trip through Bucharest to reveal the “great accomplishments of the golden era” and to hear the story of people who built it. You will see the first communist building in Bucharest, the Revolution Square with the balcony where the dictator gave his last speech, the majestic “House of People” and the former residence of the presidential couple. The tour will start in the morning at your hotel and following a 4 hour itinerary you will see the most interesting communist sights of Bucharest downtown with entrance at the Parliament Palace "House of People" and Primaverii Palace. The itinerary depends on your hotel’s location, but it will include: Free Press Square (Piata Presei Libere), The Arch of Triumph (Arcul de Triumf), Victoriei Square (Piata Victoriei), Calea Victoriei – Revolution Square (Romanian Atheneum, Revolution’s Memorial), The Palace of Parliament (Palatul Parlamentului), Union Square (Piata Unirii) – University Square (Piata Universitatii), Romana Square (Piata Romana), Victoriei Square and Charles de Gaulle Square (Piata Charles de Gaulle).
