  • Itinerary: Bucharest - Targoviste Military Base - Bucharest: Parliament Palace - Revolution Square - Communist Era Neighborhoods

    Military Base in Targoviste: Leave Bucharest and drive for 1.5 hours to reach Targoviste - a small town located in south-eastern Romania. The town became famous due the fact that here, the communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife Elena, were executed in 1989. Former military barracks where the dictator and his wife, were shot after a very short trial, were turned into a unique museum and open for the public.

    Return to Bucharest and take a tour inside the Palace of the Parliament: the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon. The Palace was designed and nearly completed by the Ceausescu regime as the seat of political and administrative power. Nicolae Ceausescu named it the House of the Republic, but many Romanians call it the People's House.

    Revolution Square: where you will see the former communist offices of Ceausescu and the site where the 1989 Revolution started in Bucharest, the memorial plaque with all the names of the people that died fighting for freedom and monument in their memory.
