Dive into the lesser-known parts of Bucharest to understand how the city transformed itself from a village-like town on the outskirts of the Ottoman Empire to the splendid and decadent city known as “the little Paris”. This small-group walking tour explores the history of the second half of 19th century, including its impact on Bucharest's architecture, economy, and society. During the 3-hour walk (with a short-break), we'll visit the picturesque neighborhoods around the Patriarchal Cathedral and Carol Park.


Meet your guide near the statue of Cuza, on Aleea Dealul Mitropoliei, and learn about the Revolution of 1848, and the wave of social, political, and economic transformations it triggered. Explore the pristine and beautiful Patriarchal hill, where the Christian Orthodox Church is headquartered. 

Descend into the historic neighborhood downhill, and discover the many exquisite examples of French-inspired architecture. You will also visit the interior of some of these buildings, discuss the style and building techniques, and get a better understanding of the living conditions in Bucharest towards the end of 19th century.

Head towards Carol Park, with its picturesque views, and learn about the series of political, economic and social changes that followed during King Carol's reign. If you're lucky, you might run into the flea-market organized by the entrance. There will be plenty of photo opportunities, as well, since Carol Park is home to one of Bucharest's seven hills. 

During the tour, there is also a short break for refreshments (drinks not included in the price).
