Full description

Discover Bucharest, a charming city full of contrasts. Admire impressive 17th-century churches, well-preserved traditional houses, and imposing French style palaces alongside communist era buildings and glass office towers.

Get picked up at your accommodation in central Bucharest, then head to the Parliament Palace. There, take a tour inside the second-largest building in the world and the seat of the Romanian Parliament in the post-communist years.

Next, move on to the Village Museum (Muzeul National al Satului "Dimitrie Gusti"), an open-air museum situated on the shore of the scenic Herastrau Lake. Explore a micro-universe of the traditional Romanian village with houses representing all regions of Romania.

From there, head to Bucharest Old Town for a walking tour, the former quarter where the merchants and craftsmen lived and worked that is now the entertainment center of Bucharest. Wander along the quaint, narrow cobblestone streets filled with restaurants, cafes, and pubs. Then, it's time for some panoramic sightseeing. Pass by Victory Avenue, one of the oldest streets in Bucharest that features majestic palaces, art museums, former residences of the aristocracy, and old churches. Then, see Revolution Square, the place where Nicolae Ceausescu held his last speech and where the protests that ultimately led to the fall of communism took place in December 1989. After, move on to discover Mogosoaia Palace, the former residence of Wallachian princes in the 18th century that combines Byzantine-Ottoman elements with Baroque and western Renaissance architectural styles. Finally, visit Snagov Monastery, the final resting place of another Wallachian prince, Vlad the Impaler, also known as Dracula. Admire this monument of medieval art before returning to your accommodation.
