Experience

Highlights
  • Discover the masterpieces created by the Romanian architects of the communist era
  • Admire the unique Romanian costumes and ceramics at the Village Museum
  • Get a glimpse of the old town of Lipscani
Full description
You’ll begin your tour with a 9:00 AM pickup from your hotel where your private English speaking guide will take you to the first attraction, the Palace of the Parliament. The second largest building in the world, the People’s Palace remains the masterpiece of the Romanian architectural geniuses. Its grandeur, shaped by a late neoclassical style, will bring you back to the communist period.

The second stop will be at the Village Museum, where the selection of bric-a-brac artifacts, unique Romanian costumes and ceramics set the scene for the traditional Romanian peasant’s past. While entering the traditional gates of the open-air ethnography museum, you will discover a great range of 272 houses, all quietly gathered in a green area of more than 100,000 m2. The ‘village’ is abundant with vibrant markets, a great gastro bar, and jarring communism exhibitions which portray Ceausescu’s program of land collectivization.

Last but not least, you will get a glimpse of the Bucharest old town, Lipscani. You will learn that there’s something new in the ‘old’ name of this bohemian town and this is owing by the vibrancy of this town that never sleeps. Your tour will end with a drop-off at your hotel.
