The former Royal Palace, with its dramatic history, dominates a large square, known today as The Revolution Square. There are several of the most important buildings of Bucharest here. So the first luxury hotel of the town - Athenee Palace (1.914), The Romanian Atheneum, a concert hall with wonderful acoustics (1.888), The Royal Foundation Charles the I, which is actually the Central Library of the University Bucharest, the former Central Committee of the Communist Party (with the office of Nicolae Ceausescu) and the Kretzulescu Church, the oldest monument of the square, a beautiful church built-in 1722. Walking around we can see a big hall, built to be the Palace for the Congresses of the Communist Party and some blocks of the same period. In a corner, there is the Lutheran Church, the church of the German minority of Romania, which had also a school of its own. Aristocrats, Constitutional monarchy and communism, the Romanian Revolution of 1.989, and present times have all modelled this central spot to be characteristic for both history and every day life in Bucharest.
I feel so lucky to be able to be part of Heygo platform, especially during these times. It has been a great opportunity to do again what I love most, which is guiding, and interact with great people from all over the world. I have always been very much attracted by all the WW1 & WW2 documentaries on History Channel and still am nowadays. Having the opportunity to share the history, the still living traditions and the beauty of my country to travelers from all over the world is like a dream come true.

Tour guide was very good and provided many interesting facts. Tour itself was just OK and not of major interest.

Obrigada Mihai, my first virtual tour to Romania and I will look for your others experiences. I love different cultures and once I had a guest from Romania in my house. I could just see the end of the tour but I will try to book again.

Mike is a professional guide, that is obvious. My inability to completely understand his narrative is my fault, not his. He delivered his stories in a continuing flow and stopped at various points for postcards. A nice tour of another new location for me.
