Bucharest Must See Walking Tour

A great Bucharest walking tour that covers 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  had his Princely Court here and actually he mentioned the name "Bucharest" for the first time in a document, in 1459.
