To many visitors and tourists, Bucharest consists of a brief visit inside the (in)famous Palace of the Parliament, the Village museum and party until the break of dawn in the rejuvenated old town center. That’s why we are on a mission here to put this secret side of Bucharest well and truly on the map.
On our hidden history walk, you will discover the true charms of the fin de siècle architecture and you’ll understand better why Bucharest was once nicknamed the little Paris of the East.
