200 Reviews

Founded in 1864 by Prince Alexander John Cuza, who ruled over the Romanian United Principalities of Walachia and Moldova, the University of Bucharest is located on Piata Universitatii, a buzzing square snarled with traffic and popular with Bucharest locals as a meeting place. The Bucharest University Palace’s imposing Neo-classical façade stands on the northwestern corner of the square; it was designed by architect Alexandru Orascu and completed in 1859.

Today the university has five faculties and is one of the biggest and most prestigious in Romania. Past alumni include playwright Eugène Ionesco, biologist George E Palade and philosopher Emil Cioran.

Outside the University Palace stand four monumental statues of pivotal figures in Romanian history as well as numerous stalls selling secondhand books. Piata Universitatii itself is surrounded by a jumble of architecturally diverse buildings, including the National Theater of Bucharest, the School of Architecture, the modernist Hotel InterContinental and the ornate Neo-classical beauty of the Coltea Hospital, the oldest in the city. A memorial of ten stone crosses stands in the middle of the square in tribute to the rebels who died in the 1989 revolution, which saw the downfall of the despotic President Ceaușescu and brought about the end of Soviet domination in Romania.

 Dracula's Castle & Peles Palace Tour from Bucharest Including Brasov Old Town

Dracula's Castle & Peles Palace Tour from Bucharest Including Brasov Old Town

star-4.5

We offer you a well balanced round trip, starting from Bucharest, with a little bit of everything included: breathtaking scenery, fairytale castles, amazing ruins, historical places, monuments and, as much as possible, interaction with the locals. Book this tour if you want to learn what, when, where and why about Romania. We will show you all the must-see attractions, but our speciality are the many sights most other tour operators don't include in their set route. Please note: We don't do shared tours, we only do private tours. If you'd like to travel together with a bunch of strangers, each one with his own agenda, pace and his good or bad habits, there are plenty of other travel agents out there happy to accommodate you. Anyway, a private tour doesn't necessarily mean an expensive tour. Please take a moment to review our prices. You'll find private tours at the price of a shared tour or cheaper!

Bucharest is located in the Southern Romania. It is the country’s biggest city, with 2.2 million inhabitants (2012). It was first documented in 1459 AD and inhabited since 500 BC. Bucharest is the Capital of Romania since 1862 AD. It has an elegant architecture built in the period between the two World Wars, reason for which it used to be called the Little Paris. The legend says that the name Bucuresti (Bucharest) comes from a shepherd who founded the town on the Dambovita river, whose name was Bucur (this means in Romanian happiness). The name Bucharest could also come from the name of the beech forests – Bukovie, other sources link the name of the city with the Albanian name – bukureshti – which means “it is beautiful”.
