Stop At: Mihai Bravu metro station, ?oseaua Mihai Bravu 514, Bucure?ti, Romania
Your Bucharest communist tour will begin with a trip to some of the metro stations built under the Ceausescu Regime. The first line was opened in 1979, and the metro network is completely different from other systems in Eastern Europe, having been built with two purposes in mind: speed of transit and practicality. You will then visit a communist neighborhood that was built especially for the working class. Here you will catch a glimpse of what the day-to-day lives of common people looked under the rule of the communist party. This walking tour is also a perfect opportunity to spot some of the street art that was strictly prohibited during Ceausescu's reign.
