Being over 550 years old, Bucharest went through a series of continuous changes, representing the central scene of Romania’s political, artistic, university, financial and cultural life. Between both world wars, due to the elegant architecture and the elite living here, the city was nicknamed “The Little Paris”.
The program will start in the morning with pick-up from your hotel and a panoramic drive through the city with brief stops for photos and explanations. In the second part, you will enjoy a 45-minute walking tour of the old downtown area.
