What to expect

The Old Town Highlights Tour begins at Manuc’s Inn, an incredible building from the early 1800s. We will explore this structure that is unique in Europe thanks to its well preserved architectural style.
Next, we will walk in the Old Town of Bucharest, on the steps of the most gruesome character in history – Vlad Dracula.
Additionally, in the nearby Manuc’s Inn learn how Bucharest evolved at the merger between the East and the West.
Later, we will show you an eclectic mix of buildings like the National Bank of Romania, the Stavropoleos Monastery and the Villacrosse Passage. Besides, you will surely be charmed by the lively atmosphere in this quarter.
Afterwards we will walk on the avenue where kings had their daily strolls – the romantic Calea Victoriei.
For example, superb Belle Epoque structures like the CEC Palace, Grand Hôtel du Boulevard or the University Library can be admired here.
In contrast, a stop in the Revolution Square will make you understand the harsh communist oppression and the control this regime had over people’s lives.
Tales of incredible achievements, but also about hunger and food rations will be told, aided by photos from those times, for a more dramatic effect.
To conclude the private tour, we will explain about the bloody revolution in December 1989 and the ultimate downfall of the Dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu.
