HISTORY, CITY TOURS

Legend says that Bucharest was founded by a shepherd named Bucur. His name can be roughly translated into”joy” (from the romanian word bucur-ie).
In the 1900s, the city earned its well deserved nickname: Little Paris. But that is something you have to see to believe. Today, the city is a mix between old and new, between traditional and modern, blending these elements together in such a way that you might even think that this was the plan all along.

The following information is divided into two parts; the afternoon and the evening city tours included in the packages. Some attractions will differ because of the time slot.

  • First up is a walk around the oldest park in Bucharest, the Cismigiu Park, a beautiful garden surrounded by a lake.

  • From there, a few minutes up the road we find the Revolution Square (known as Palace Square) until 1989 when the Ceausescu communism regime has fallen. Right there we can also find the Romanian Atheneum, the Royal Palace and the Memorial of Rebirth (dedicated to the fallen heroes that took part in the revolution of 1989).

  • And now we find ourselves in University Square, in the exact middle of the city (km 0) where we find the National Theatre, dedicated to one of our most famous play writers, Ion Luca Caragiale.

  • And what would a Bucharest tour be without a visit to Old Town, or as others may call it, the Historical Center? With its beautiful streets and old architecture, this is the perfect place to sit down, have dinner and end the tour on a high note.
