Benefits of Booking Excursions in Bucharest through

The capital of Romania is full of storied history and dizzying architecture. Its Byzantine buildings, 16th- and 17th-century churches, Art Nouveau mansions, and spectacular Neoclassical facades mix to form a kaleidoscopic display.

But a dark chapter of Bucharest’s history was written during communism with the destruction and transformation of its bourgeois identity. Join a specialist communist tour guide to see the evidence for yourself and learn more about life during that time.

1. Biserica Sfantul Nicolae Dintr-o Zi

Biserica Sfantul Nicolae Dintr-o Zi este una dintre cele mai vechile biserici ale Bucurestiului. It's a must-see for anyone looking to learn more about the history of Romania.

Its imposing dome is embellished with gilded stuccowork, and the circular concert hall seats more than 650. It also features a spectacular fresco on the frieze that depicts the most pivotal events in Romanian history.

If you're planning to visit Biserica Sfantul Nicolae Dintr-o zi, book your tickets ahead. The George Enescu Festival is a great time to see this iconic monument.

2. Romanian Athenaeum Concert Hall

If you’re a music fan, there are few places in Bucharest where you can see classical concerts that compare to the Romanian Athenaeum. This gorgeous building was designed by renowned French architect Albert Galleron and is inspired by an ancient Greek temple.

The interiors are exquisite with gold leaf ceilings and marble spiral staircases. The concert hall can accommodate up to 652 people at a time and is known for its wonderful acoustics and fine art.


3. Carturesti Carusel Bookstore

If you're a book lover and you like to get lost among books then this is the place for you. Carturesti Carusel (literally translated as "Carousel of Light") is a beautiful and historic book store located in the heart of Bucharest's Old Town.

This bookstore is a great place to stop and enjoy a tea or coffee while reading your favorite book. The building is located on Strada Lipscani and it's easy to find if you're exploring the area.

4. Palatul Parlamentului

Located in the heart of the Palace of Parliament, this grand edifice is not to be missed. With a glass-enclosed atrium and an impressive neoclassical exterior, it’s no wonder this is one of the city’s most popular landmarks.

The best part is that you can get to it via the hotel’s free shuttle. It also boasts a top-notch restaurant, indoor pool and hot spring baths. It’s not often you see this combination in the same building! You won’t find a better deal.


5. Piata Victoriei

While some streets are packed with bars and clubs, others offer a glimpse of the Bucharest of old. It’s not the Little Paris you expect, but if you’re a history buff, it’s well worth taking a stroll through this pedestrian area in the city center.

Start at Revolution Square on Calea Victoriei and walk from one end to the other to see the impressive buildings around it. You’ll pass by the marble Memorial of Rebirth and the statue of King Carol I, which was torn down by the Communists in 1948.

6. Saint George Church

A visit to this neo-Baroque church with its vaulted narthex and apses will take you back in time. It was erected by Constantine Brancoveanu in 1688 and was restored with frescoes in 1705.

While many historic buildings in Bucharest are still in a state of disrepair, you can also find some grand edifices that have been restored to their former glory. Some of these churches, like this one, are a true architectural monument.

7. Cotroceni Palace

Located in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of Bucharest, Cotroceni Palace has been a home for several centuries. It is associated with several important events that took place here during the course of Romanian history.

The palace served as a residence of the royal families for three centuries, from Wallachian and then Romanian kings. Explore magnificent hall ways, king’s and queen’s bedrooms, the Crown Council room and the king’s office with your guide.

8. Herastrau Park

Aside from being one of the city's largest parks, Herastrau is also home to a huge open-air ethnographic museum. It displays hundreds of houses that have been relocated from all corners of Romania.

The park is spread over 462 acres (187 hectares) around Herastrau Lake. It has a boat rental service, old-fashioned fairground and tennis courts.
