Description

Destroying almost 6 square kilometers (4 miles) of buildings in the heart of the city , taking down the statues of the Romanian Kings and removing their stone-carved portraits from the Arch of Triomphe, these are just a few of the decisions that reshaped Bucharest and transformed it during the Communist Era, called the Golden Era by the fanatics.

The communist regime left a powerful mark on the whole Eastern Bloc, even though one of Europe’s last dictators, Nicolae Ceausescu was taken down from power more than 30 years ago. The traces of communism are still clearly visible throughout the city.

Catch a glimpse of how the Communist era shaped Romania in a historic tour of Bucharest. Visit metro stations and apartment buildings from that period and get a better understanding of how people lived their daily lives under the Ceausescu regime. Your tour includes a visit to the Palace of the Parliament and to the Ceausescu Residential Palace.
