Dark Side Tour

Tour information

Explore the depths reached by human beings. Although there will be blood, horror, crushed love stories and even a pinch of the supernatural, that’s not the point actually. Cheap thrills are best left to Hollywood professionals. What we’re more interested in is to give you a bit of context, a broader sense of events unfolding through history in these lands that we now call Romania. Hear all about the bloody feuds between the Muslim world and the Christian rulers of Romania. Travel back in time in the beginning of the 20th century to find out all about the prostitutes that Bucharest had before the Communist Regime took power. Learn about the Communist torture methods that were used in the hundreds of deportation camps and prison across the country. Our grand finale takes place inside the Bellu Cemetery, a place filled with love stories, unique architecture and sometimes even mysteries waiting to be uncovered.

This tour includes:

English speaking local guide — Bucharest's dark history — Communist torture methods — Bellu Cemetery
