Your private 8-hour sightseeing tour of Bucharest will start in the morning around 09:30 when your guide will come to meet you at your accommodation. Then board your private vehicle for your whistle-stop tour of the Romanian capital.
From the comfort of your seat, see all the top Bucharest attractions while hearing about the city’s unique history and culture from your local guide.
Being over 550 years old, Bucharest went through a series of continuous changes, representing the central scene of Romania’s political, artistic university, financial and cultural life. Between the two world wars, due to the elegant architecture and the elite living here, the city’s nickname was “The Little Paris.”
First, pass along the Kiseleff boulevard that crosses the greeny north part of the city to discover iconic monuments as the Arch of Triumph which was built to honor fallen Romanian soldiers and the gaining of the country’s independence and the House of Free Press – the first building erected by the communist in Bucharest and the headquarter of the only “official” newspaper during the communism regime.
Then, continue your tour through Victory Square and Victory Avenue – one of the longest and oldest streets of Bucharest – to admire the multitude of emblematic buildings and monuments, some of the best Bucharest attractions as the Cantacuzino Palace, the Romanian Athenaeum, the Central University Library, the former Royal Palace, the statue of King Carol I, Kretzulescu Church, the Military Circle, the Bucharest Opera House, and CEC Bank.
Once in the city center, you will first stop at Revolution Square to discover the buildings here and to hear the story of the violent anti-communist revolution of December 1989.
From here you will go straight to the eye-catching immense building dominating the city – the Parliament Palace, also known as the House of Ceausescu or House of the People – for an indoor one-hour guided visit.
Before going for a visit to Cotroceni Museum – the marvelous palace that hosts the Romanian Presidency, we will invite you for a lunch to taste traditional Romanian dishes at a local restaurant with a special atmosphere and architecture.
The last visit of the day will include a stroll in the wonderful open-air museum of Bucharest – the Village Museum – where you will be impressed by the charm of the old Romanian houses gathered here from all regions of the country.
In the end, your private guide will take you back to your hotel or private accommodation, filled with memories of all the amazing sights you have seen during your tour.
