Communism was here for more than 40 years, so no wonder Bucharest is full of "souvenirs" from this not so long ago period. The House of the People or the Victory of Socialism Bld. to name just a few. Join us and learn how communism shaped Romanian society and Bucharest and get a realistic insight into life under communist rule. Get sad when listening our stories or smile hearing popular jokes about communist leaders and make your own opinion about how different was communism in our country.

We did the Communist Tour and found it excellent. Our guide, Elena, knew her history and showed us around the town explaining about Ceausescu's time and sticky end. The tour was about three hours and is highly recommended.
