Welcome to the dark side of Bucharest. When night falls, strange beings lurk in the shadows of the old town and peculiar things begin to happen. Are you ready for a terrifying adventure?
Bucharest Ghosts & Vampires Tour
Throughout its history, Bucharest has been witness to death, mass murder and mysteries that have yet to be solved. Some of its greatest secrets lie in the depths of the city just waiting for the right moment to emerge from the shadows... Keep a close eye out during your guided walking tour of the Romanian capital.
After meeting your guide at the National Theatre, you'll begin your spooky journey through Bucharest, learning all about its legendary beginnings as a city. As you wander through the old town, you'll pass crumbling houses that seem to be abandoned... just ignore those creepy voices you hear in the distance! Your guide will show you the House of the Devil, and reveal how it got this ominous name, before telling the tale of the tunnels snaking under the city and the legend of the Vampire of Bucharest.
Deep in the most ancient streets of the city, you may feel the presence of the spirits of those who died in the great fire of 1847 and hear the ghostly screams of children tortured in an orphanage. And don't forget the story of Count Dracula, who has been spotted haunting the ruins of the Old Princely House.
Your ghosts and vampires tour of Bucharest will end in the Old Town, where you can continue exploring... if you dare!
