Who we are, what we do and why we do it

The Interesting Times Bureau was launched in 2014 by the non-profit organisation Asociatia Coolturala “Noua Ne Pasa!” with the purpose of supporting local cultural and artistic projects that relate to urban life and environment and fund them by developing sustainable urban tours and workshops.

We are a group of passionate locals with diverse backgrounds, but we are all united by our strong passion for the city we call home. We love the city and we’d like nothing more than to show you around and share stories of the city with you!

The Masterminds behind this project are Bucharest natives and experts in the city: historians, architects, professional tour guides artists and designers all cannot wait to show you Bucharest from a surprising perspective.

We are all licensed tour guides but above all we are natural born story tellers who know all the hidden gems, bohemian corners and off the beaten path initiatives that make up the DNA of our city

Interesting Times Bureau’s first experience and attempt to truly understand the city goes back to 2007 and our Alternative Tour. Since that moment we have made it our mission to reveal, through our tours and experiences, the DNA of our city, away from the tourist crowds and shiny lights of the Old Town: the history, architecture, stories, secrets, smells, sights and tastes.  We peel back layer after layer until we get to the core of our city. This is what we present to you, our guest: The true heart of Bucharest.

We are a group of individuals with very diverse backgrounds brought together by one idea: Bucharest is a city with a lot of surprises to be revealed and explored. This is what we strive to do on a day to day basis, whether we come from a corporate background, history, tour guiding, art or theater.
