the city

Bucharest is a city of strong contrasts. A relatively young city with old mentalities; right at the gates of the Orient, hopelessly influenced by the West but belonging to neither.

“all art was contemporary”

When we first started this tour it was concentrated around street art and urban culture. Later we realized that as much as we love these forms of expression they can’t make much sense to the traveler without some context, without some history. simply because, as someone said,: “all art was once contemporary” .

Bucharest Shoutout!

Here’s a nice video made by the creative people of Bucharest. Full disclosure : the costume designer is a guest guide for Interesting Times Bureau

We practice Slow Tourism

What is slow tourism?

We  believe very much in the slow movement: slow food, slow cities, slow design, slow living.

You are on holiday.You should never have a schedule in your holiday. That’s why we start  with lemonade and a quick chat about what you’ll see on the tour.

Slow tourism also means:

  • good connection with the local community
  • authenticity
  • cohabitation
  • support for the local artists
  • enjoy the experience
  • time to wonder and understand
  • take plenty of photos.
