Bucharest Free Walking Tour by Eddie

A great city intro, this Bucharest free walking tour covers some of the most important city attractions

Bucharest is one of the most fascinating cities in Europe. You can discover here a unique mix of urban layers representing different stages of Bucharest history. Vlad the Impaler (Dracula) had his Princely Court here and actually he mentioned the name "Bucharest" for the first time in a document, in 1459.

Welcome to Bucharest - The Little Paris - The City of Joy!
