My husband and I booked this unique, experiential walking tour of the darker 1980s Ceaușescu-era in Romania's history. Diana was our guide for the day. A keen and well-studied historian, Diana is a fountain of knowledge, as well as continuously inquisitive. She brought the history of Communism to life in this full-day tour, taking us back in time to the embryonic beginnings of Communism in Romania. We were fortunate to begin our tour inside the spectacular Atheneum concert hall, where a music rehearsal was taking place. The importance of the Atheneum, and how its surround of historical frescoes evaded Communist re-painting, was brought to life. I will ensure there are no spoilers in my review, as I want to encourage as many people as possible to take this unique tour. From there, it was on to Revolution Square and environ, as Diana took us through the steps leading up to the 1989 Revolution. Included in the tour itinerary was a visit to the home of the Ceaușescu's, only opened since 2016. From there, it was on to the Militar neighborhood, where we visited the living-museum experience of Ferestroika. Originally, we had hoped to visit the Palace of Parliament - Ceaușescu's gargantuan megalomaniac construction project - but it was closed for private meetings. So Diana offered us the substitute of the Ferestroika tour (for which you can also read my review here on TripAdvisor). This whole day was one I will carry for the rest of my life...it was so deeply thought-provoking, emotionally and viscerally connected, and intellectually stimulating. Couldn't help thinking at times - given how the political climate is shifting around the world at this moment in our own history - if we, as humans, might not be learning from our past. Highly, highly recommended! If I could award this more than 5-stars, I definitely would!!
