Overview
Today we are going to explore recent Romanian history and find out the true face of a very intriguing character: Nicolae Ceausescu. Our professional guide will give you a lecture about the communist times in Romanian and the rise and fall of its most beloved son. Find out how Ceausescu rose to power and turned from a loved and popular leader to the totalitarian dictator who pushed the whole country into darkness. Also in order to get to know who he really was we are going to visit his greatest achievement: the Parliament Palace. Discover the second largest building in the world- formerly known as the People’s Palace. After we finish learning about his life, we are going to speak about his downfall and eventual death. In order to get the right picture we are going to drive north, to the old capital of Wallachia, Targoviste. Here we are going to learn about the last hours of the dictatorial couple, at the very military unit where they were prosecuted and executed.
