Half Day Bucharest Tour (2 visits, without lunch): Depart from your hotel and begin your extended panoramic tour of Bucharest, the capital of Romania. Once called the “Paris of the Balkans”, Bucharest is a fascinating city with countless contrasts which can be observed at every step. Its compelling history is reflected in the beautiful architecture of the oldest part of the city, but also in the Communist-built apartment buildings. Its wide boulevards and large squares, its monuments and museums, its parks and shopping centers are definitely worth a look.
You will visit the Patriarchal Church, and also do three photo-stops, which will provide you with the opportunity to see the greatest expression of Ceausescu’s megalomania - People’s Palace, the Revolution Square - that put a stop to it, and the Military Academy. You will also travel to the Village Museum, one of the best open-air museums in Europe, for a wonderful guided inside visit. After your incursion into the rural aspects of Romanian life, you will return to the hotel in time for lunch.
