Communism Full Day with Lunch Included

Local Hosts turns tourists into locals and locals into tourists.

We know that during a tour it's best to stop for refreshments and quick bites! Thus, we've included lunch to all our tours. Join us for a different experience in small groups and off the beaten path views.

This is a unique way to explore a seemingly forgotten story that has pushed the boundaries of endurance and has marked several generations of Romanians.

A trip down-on-memory lane, appealing to all of your senses, that will unveil the city and its people with both good and bad sides, while allowing you to judge the progress and the downfall of a society for yourselves.

To top everything up, we've included a drive through the Bronx of Bucharest where you'll witness the communist bedroom dormitories that defined (and still do) the last 50 years of Romanian social history.

The experience includes access inside a former communist prison, transformed into a memorial and located within the biggest prison in Bucharest!
