What to Expect
Discover the most historic areas of central Bucharest with a private, 2.5-hour walking tour. Visit all of the city's best-known sights and some hidden ones off the usual tourist track!
Your tour starts at Unirii Square for a view of the colossal Palace of the Parliament, the second-largest building in the world. From here, visit St. Anthony's Church, the oldest in the city, followed by a stop at Manuc's Inn and the ruins of the former Royal Court, as well as the Stavropoleos Monastery. The route will take you past the medieval Old Town, today transformed into Bucharest's bustling downtown.
Jumping forward to the 18th and 19th centuries, admire the beautiful French-style buildings on Calea Victoriei Street and discover why Bucharest was once known as Little Paris.
The tour ends close to Revolution Square, where you'll have the chance to talk to your guide about what Communist rule meant for Romania and Bucharest and how the country changed after the 1989 revolution.
