Communist walking tour in Bucharest (Romania)

The coolest walking tour in Bucharest is the Communist Walking tour. The tour is a free tour that runs 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.

Note: For a personlised tour, this tour can be booked using Viator website.
