If the world is a stage, then, for sure, Bucharest deserves its place in the spotlight. It had it all: love, betrayal, conquering Russian czars and German generals, French Vaudeville, merchants of Venetian goods, Greek tragedies and one or two Great Fires for good measure. Visit the city’s most famous locations such as Revolution Square, the Military Circle, the former National Theater, as well as the beautiful church of Kretulescu — one of the most famous in Bucharest — and receive insights from a knowledgeable local guide. Bucharest is a city of strong contrasts — a relatively young city with old mentalities; right at the gates of the Orient, hopelessly influenced by the West and belonging in fact to neither.
This tour includes:
English speaking local guide — City introduction — Revolution Square — The Military Circle — The former National Theater — Kretulescu
“Bucharest — an amazing treasure trove of history and culture unveiled magnificently by Anita our guide.”
