The coolest walking tour in Bucharest is the Communist Walking tour. There are free tours that run at 3 PM everyday Monday to Friday. But I did this walk on my own as I couldn’t get to the meeting place on time. The walk starts off at Romanian Athenaeum and ends at the Parliament Palace.

  • Total distance: 6 kilometres
  • Time taken: 2 hours
  • Grade: Easy
  • Landmarks covered:
    • Romanian Athenaeum – a concert hall opened in 1888.
    • Equestrian statue of King Carol – statue of the first king of Romania.
    • Telephone Palace – office building built between 1929 and 1934.
    • Revolution square – also known as Piata Revolutiei
    • Victoria avenue
    • Casa Capsa – a hotel built in 1852
    • Military Circle
    • Cismigiu Garden
    • Regina Elisabeta Boulevard
    • Parliament Palace – second largest administrative building in the World.






    1. During 1947 to 89, Bucharest was under the communist govt. and the important landmarks during this walk, talks about the marches and protests that were held during that time. And hence Communist Walking Tour 😊
