Free walking tours in Bucharest

Do you plan a city break in Bucharest any time soon? The walking tour is free of charge!

As I was saying in a previous article, the capital of Romania can be seen in at least 2 days, starting the visit in the Old town and then strolling along Calea Victoriei.  There a lot of places to visit, buildings to admire and things to do. Be sure not to miss during your visit:

  • Old Town
  • Primăverii Palace
  • Parliament Palace
  • Calea Victoriei
  • Romanian Athenaeum
  • Cișmigiu Park
  • The Arch of Triumph
  • Village Museum

A group of people passionate about history and art who are willing to share their free time and knowledge decided to make this tours every day. Besides English, the guides can speak French, German, Spanish and Italian. The free walking tours have 2 options:

My personal tip upon your visit in Bucharest is to go at this place, named Cărturești Carusel, it is a library with a special architecture and it also has a nice place to have a drink.
