We continue our Bucharest free tour by entering the Old Town, visiting Stavropoleos Monastery, learning the story behind the famous Caru cu Bere restaurant, walking down Victoriei Avenue right before entering Macca Villacrosse passage – a gorgeous peaceful place during the morning that comes alive at night when the bars roam with locals.

After seeing the grandeur of the building where the National Bank of Romania is, we stop by Carturesti Carusel to see what used to be this building before becoming the most instagramable spot of the city! We go on to find out how the communist era affected the general look of Bucharest.

Our next stop is dedicated to describing all of the most delicious Romanian dishes – traditions and superstitions included!

What would a free tour be without a more than 200 years old inn and the oldest standing church of the city?

Probably not as good, that’s why we stop at Manuc’s Inn and Saint Anthony’s Church.After telling the 100% real story of the ruler that inspired Dracula’s legend, we continue towards Rome’s symbol, describing how the Romanian people formed, we visit the Kilometer Zero monument and we find out its interesting history before finishing a two hours and a half walk in University’s Square where we tell the story of the Communist regime fall.

Don’t worry; our final stop is five minutes away of restaurants and bars, just in case you will want to have lunch right after tour!
