Communism has been here for more than 40 years. Bucharest is full of “souvenirs” from that period: from the most ambitious projects to abandoned areas, sometimes actual mentalities and even bullet holes. We invite you to explore every aspect of life during this period and understand their influence in today’s city. On this tour you will get to know Nicolae Ceausescu's real life story and imagine his socialist dream in the Union Square. You will be impressed by the Palace of the Parliament. You will find out what the files of the secret police Securitate sounded like right in front of the secret police headquarters. You will discover myths and facts about the 1989 uprising right in the Revolution Square. We will get sad with stories on the violent 1989 revolution, we will get amused by the jokes about Ceausescu, and in the end you will decide how you really feel about the Romanian version of communism.
