Undiscovered Bucharest Tour

We'll set off to discover the undiscovered Bucharest starting at the Boulevardul General Gheorghe Magheru, where we'll meet at 10.30 am.

From the meeting point, we'll head straight to Arthur Verona Street, famous for its murals of urban art. What do these spray paintings represent? What messages were the artists trying to portray? We'll discuss the meanings of these fascinating works of street art!

Then we'll head to the spectacular Casa Universitarilor. As we marvel at its neo-gothic architecture, we'll learn about this building's unique origins. The next stop will be the Jewish Quarter, where we'll admire the façades of its most important monuments, among which is the Templul Coral, a synagogue that was totally rebuilt after it was destroyed in the Second World War.

Afterwards, we'll delve into the darkest parts of Bucharest's history and hop on the metro to Eroii Revolutiei: the closest station to the Bellu Cemetery, known for its magnificent mausoleums and sculptures. We'll even hear some chilling stories about some of the people historically buried here, such as the Romanian poet Iulia Hasdeu...

The tour will end at the entrance to Bellu Cemetery.
