This tour explores the key landmarks of communism in Bucharest, the capital of Romania, a city that expanded almost double its size in this period, mainly due to Nicolae Ceausescu’s vision of forced urbanization and destruction of the traditional village.

The tour features 10 major attractions, including the World Record Palace of the Parliament, Ceausescu's most important construction in Bucharest and one of the main symbols of the regime that violently ended in December 1989.

The tour follows the history of the Communist Party from its first days of existance, its illegal take over of the government after the Second World War and the impact it had on politics, society and economy in its more than four decades of total contral over Romania.

Beside the Palace of the Parliament, the attractions visited include the Revolution and the 21st of December Squares plus other emblematic an surprising places for the communist past of Bucharest.

The full tour takes roughly around 8 hours, but shorter options can be aranged as well as more in-depth ones. The tour is led by a certified quide, a Tourism and Political Science graduate, fluent in English, French and Spanish.
