Bucharest Discovery

Bucharest Discovery

A classic tour with a new perspective

Bucharest’s major sites revealed

the city & the tour

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 and belonging in fact to neither.
We have teamed up with one of the most respected urban historians, Ms Anita Sterea, to give you the most comprehensive and entertaining walking tour.
If the world is a stage then, for sure, Bucharest deserves its place in the spotlight. It had it all:
Love, betrayal, conquering Russian tsarists , French Vaudeville, merchants of Venetian goods, Greek tragedies and one or two Great Fires for good measure.
A miniature of Paris perhaps, only with much better weather.
