Day 1: Arrival in Bucharest, city tour
Arrive in Bucharest, meet up with your guide, and rejuvenate after your flight at the Capitol Hotel, situated right in the center of town. It’s a wonderful starting point for an investigation of the city’s deep history and diverse culture.
Traditionally a center for intellectualism, the arts, and avant-garde thought, Bucharest experienced a significant interruption with the advent of Communism in Romania. The present-day capital still holds obvious remnants of this epoch in Ceausescu-related monuments constructed on a grand scale. Surviving French-influenced architecture exists side-by-side with cool, modern office buildings to complete Bucharest’s current incarnation.
Follow your guide on a panoramic city tour, and glean an exclusive perspective on the daily life of this outstanding city.
*should you travel to Bucharest on a flight that arrives late in the afternoon or evening, the city tour can also be done the next morning
