This is where our guided walking tour finished and we were told about how this area played a big part in the history of new Romania. We didn't find a very good guide book before we visited Romania so the walking tour was brilliant in...More

Care for this memory! I can still hear the voices, the rumble of the tanks. The crowd shouting and the discussion amongst everyone.... The fear and also the hope in the eyes of people being there on that fateful day.

This is where a large crowd gathered on December 21st 1989 to put events in motion that led to the fall of Ceausescu. It is poignant and of huge historical significance - especially for those of us who saw things unfold on live TV.

If you are in Bucharest, you should totally add this stop on your list, it is also near the Palace and has a rather interesting art exhibition.

This is a stunning and powerful place to visit. Dictator Ceausescu gave his last speech to the nation (you can watch it on You Tube) from a balcony here, and was stunned to see the people revolt before his eyes. Buildings around the plaza still...More

A visit here reminds everyone that freedom was not won cheaply. It required the bravery of many who crowded the streets in search of the end of communist dictatorship. Our great guide George Trandafir provided us with many first-hand details.

If you go to the metro at the university it's just down the main road which takes you to the park (perpendicular from the train line) it's on the right hand side.
