Full description
Your bike tour will begin in Bucharest's old city center, with a few highlights from your guide about the major role which the communist era had in ruining this historical part of the city. Coral Temple will be the next stop, because the Jewish community were among the initiators of the communist movement in the early in 1920s. The tour will continue at the site of the communist bomb attack against the democratic Romanian government, the first Romanian parliament.

After the communist movement, the tour will advance to the period right after the second World War when Romania ended up being occupied by the Soviet Union for 12 years. This stage the tour will pass through the neighborhood where the Russian army generals who were in charge for the ruling of the country lived.

The last stage of the tour will pass by the biggest unfinished communist building, the National History Museum. This museum consists of buildings that were completely reshaped by the communist regime during their flourishing times. Your last stop will be in front of the Communist Central Committee, where Ceusescu held his last speech and where the Revolution started in December 1989.
