This walking tour explores the key landmarks of communism in Bucharest, a city that expanded almost double its size in this period, mainly due to Ceausescu’s vision of forced urbanization and destruction of the traditional village. We visit the symbol of communism in Bucharest, the World Record Palace of the Parliament, a construction of enormous dimensions built with great sacrifices, the Heroes’ Mausoleum and the symbols of democracy: the Revolution Square and the 21st of December Square.

We also explore on foot the Civic Center built as the first part of the new Bucharest Nicolae Ceausescu was planning to create and we visit two of the churches saved from the political decision of destruction, moved through an innovative technique even hundreds of meters away from their original location. We also visit the permanent exhibition of the Communism Memorial from Sighet and we observe first hand the different communist architectural styles.

Last but not least, we visit the former residence of the Ceausescu couple, the dictatorial communist couple, and take a nice walk through Herastrau Park to the former Scanteia House, a faithful copy of the Lomonosov University from Moscow. This is one of the first communist built monuments in Bucharest and was the headquarters of all state controlled media.
