Nicolae Ceausescu became the General Secretary of the Romanian Communist Party in 1965 and the president of the Socialist Republic of Romania in 1974. 15 years later, he was removed from power and executed after a violent revolution during the winter of 1989. Learn on this communist tour of Bucharest why, while nowadays Romania is a democracy, the communist period remained interesting as well as controversial.
