Such nice stories. There is no time to get bored, the facts and the photos will transpose you either in the Communist Romania, or the romantic times of the Monarchy. One of the best walking tours I ever did!!!

It was a lovely walk, despite the cold weather. The guide, unfortunately I forgot the name, told us such nice stories about historical figures, architecture and how the local used to leave. I leaned allot about Romania and Bucharest and I am so happy that I did this tour. Probably one of the best tours in Europe.
