Stop At: Museum of Communism, Bulevardul Regele Carol I, Targoviste 130010 Romania

You’ll begin your tour with a 9:00 am pickup from your Bucharest hotel/hostel and start our journey back in time to the captivating communism era. Your private English-speaking guide will take you first to the "Execution Museum" in Targoviste.

Not far from Bucharest, the small town of Targoviste played a monumental role in the history of the country. Apart of its royal past when the city served as the capital of the great Wallachia country for a couple of centuries (between 1418-1659), it is also the site which made international headlines back in Christmas Day,1989, when the communist party leader Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife were executed.

The bullet-grey building looks the same as it did 16 years ago: the execution walls are still embedded with the marks of the projectiles and with the white outlines of where the two were laid down. During the fascinating return to 1989, you will discover the court room along with many stories behind the execution.


Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Palace of Parliament, Strada Izvor 2-4, Bucharest 050711 Romania

After visiting the Execution Museum, you will visit the second largest building in the world Parliament’s Palace, home to Romania’s Parliament. And if you think ‘BIG’ than you must think about the Parliament’s Palace. The second largest building in the world, People’s Palace remains the masterpiece of the Romanian architectural genius. Its grandeur, shaped by a late neoclassical style will bring you back to the communist period and the overwhelming feeling given by its dimensions will follow you throughout the journey.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei), Calea Victoriei Boulevard, Bucharest Romania

Your tour will continue to the Revolution Square. The square, which contains buildings such as the National Museum of Art of Romania, the University of Bucharest, and the Memorial of Rebirth, highlight a great deal of Romanian history.

After this full day of touring, you’ll end the tour back at your hotel/hostel, where you’ll have a complete understanding of Bucharest’s history during communist Romania.
