What you'll do

Come on over to the dark side...of Bucharest. Travel back in time through stories of a turbulent past and explore the less savory aspects of its history, from the bloody battles fought between Vlad the Impaler and the Ottoman Empire in the Middle Ages, to the "Little Paris" era of the early 20th century, and on to Communist times, undoubtedly one of Romania's darkest chapters. Visit the oldest cemetery in town, a beautiful final resting place with an eclectic collection of funeral monuments ranging from astoundingly beautiful to bewildering, and hear stories that will make your heart melt and your hair curl. Explore a former luxury brothel famous during the golden age of 'Little Paris', and hear stories of famous courtesans who stole the hearts of kings. Find out about our own 'Jack the Ripper', dubbed the 'Vampire of Bucharest', who had a penchant for blonde waitresses and terrorized the city in the early 70s. Finish the adventure in the Revolution Square and learn about the hardships of daily life under one of Eastern Europe's most brutal totalitarian regimes, as well as the struggle of the Romanian people to free themselves from oppression through the Revolution of 1989.
