    What to expect

    Splendid Belle Epoque structures standing on the Victoria Avenue, the first street in the world illuminated with oil lamps. Known as the Little Paris of the East by the travelers of the 19th century, Bucharest was occupied by foreign armies in World War I, heavily bombed in World War II, shaken by major earthquakes and finally came under the Iron Curtain
    In the late part of the 20th century “The city of Joy” was surrounded by oppression, terror and hunger, under one of the strictest communist regimes in Europe.
    In front of the intimidating Palace of the Parliament you will learn how the second largest administrative building in the world was built.
    Relive the Romanian Revolution by standing in the square where the most blood was shed in December 1989, which culminated with the death of a dictator that was streamed on National Television.
