For those interested in learning something about rumenian contemporary society the "Alternative tour" is the best bet.

Livia was our guide during a very insightful alternative tour of Bucharest city. For me, this tour was by far the highlight of my stay in Bucharest. It made me see a side of the city which would otherwise be invisible to my "visitor's perspective"....More
