Romania was a communist country for more than 40 years, from 1948 to December 1989.  Nicolae Ceausescu became the General Secretary of the Romanian Communist Party in 1965 and the president of the Socialist Republic of Romania in 1974. 15 years later, he was removed from power and executed after a violent revolution.  While nowadays Romania is a democracy, the communist period remains interesting as well as controversial.

You will see the first communist building in Bucharest, the Revolution Square with the balcony where the dictator gave his last speech, the majestic "House of the People" and the former residence of the presidential couple.  The specific itinerary of this tour depends on your hotel’s location, but it will include:  Free Press Square, The Arch of Triumph, Victoriei Square, Calea Victoriei, Revolution Square (Romanian Atheneum, Revolution’s Memorial), The Palace of Parliament, Union Square, University Square, Romana Square, Charles de Gaulle Square and Primaverii Palace (the former residence of the dictator).

Entrance fees are NOT included for Parliament Palace and Primaverii Palace but they may be purchased on the day of the tour based on availability by each attraction.
