1. BUCHAREST CITY TOUR – THE PALACE OF PARLIAMENT OR PEOPLE’S HOUSE
In Bucharest City Tour at the Palace of Parliament or People’s House – you will learn how dangerous and damaging a totalitarian regime like communism can be for a nation. You will feel small seeing what pointless opulence and megalomania “the sleep of reason” can create.
Imagine you have the chance to see the second largest administrative building on the planet, after the Pentagon, and that it will be an experience you will be able to share with your grandchildren.
See the story of the People’s House
2. BUCHAREST CITY TOUR – THE BUCHAREST NATIONAL VILLAGE MUSEUM
In Bucharest City Tour you will visit The National Village Museum – in one place, you will see an embodiment of Romanian traditions and you will learn what it meant for Romanian villagers to have built an ecological and sustainable environment in their backyard. You will also get a glimpse of their simple and modest lifestyle, in social and spiritual harmony with their surroundings.
Book a private guide in Bucharest and you will enter the universe of the traditional Romanian houses, large or small, made of wood and adobe, but also stone and other materials, from all areas of the country. You will also see national symbols such as the mill or the wooden church and you will learn how these treasures of spirituality and civilization have kept us united for thousands of years, without needing to invade other nations.
On Calea Victoriei (Victory Avenue) – with your private guide you will be fascinated by the contradictions of history: on one side, you have the Royal Palace and on the other, the Central Committee of the Romanian Communist Party and the Revolution Square, where Ceausescu fled the country by helicopter.
You will see old orthodox churches, enveloped in an aura of mystery, a music store, where you can find a large selection of music, as well as casinos, bohemian restaurants, museums, theatres, tea shops, retail stores and gift shops, where you can purchase souvenirs, and even the National History Museum and the Romanian Athenaeum, another Romanian architectural landmark, the CEC Palace and many others.
Revolution Square, Bucharest
In this private tour about the communism, you can be transported back in time to the moment where the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was ousted, leaving behind the secrets of a great fortune and controversies about the state security service and his offshore accounts.
As we mentioned earlier, when we reach the Senate Palace, you will see the building which used to house the Central Committee of the Romanian Communist Party and the place where the Revolution of December 1989 started – a major historical event whereby, through human force and sacrifice, Ceausescu was removed from power.
