Bucharest chronicles


For a back to basics tour, we give you an overview of our recent past and our older much more glorious history. Starting from the University Square - probably the most popular meeting point in the city, we then move along Calea Victoriei where aristocrats, merchants, communist officials and then new capitalists shouldered each other, in their respective eras, to get a place on the city’s oldest route. We then hop in the Old Town, through a secret passage, to see tiny and gorgeous medieval churches as well as the latest boho-bougie architectural statements. You’ll also get a glimpse into the many controversies behind the House of the People. We’ll end the tour at a grand traditional inn with beer and local cuisine.

It was a great tour! Mircea is very enthusiastic guide, he showed undiscovered parts of Bucharest, we managed to have a coffee at the Parliament building, and in the end of the tour we tried the local food as well. Meanwhile he shared different stories about the local people, communist history and historical facts. One of the best tours I ever had, definitely recommend!
