Bucharest Architectural Tour – Art Deco & Modernism

One of Bucharest’s most characteristic and interesting features, and one that always strikes visitors, is its astonishing urban landscape and architectural diversity. For a long time isolated behind the Iron Curtain, Bucharest now digs out from its past and reveals its architectural treasures.

This private architectural walking and sightseeing tour focuses on the modern architecture in Bucharest between 1920-1945, that includes first-class examples of Art Deco, Bauhaus and International Style. This tour is a great way to understand and take in Bucharest through its architecture, which is an essential part of the character of the city.

Not all the buildings you will see are in their best condition. Bucharest did not have the time to recover after the decades of communist dictatorship, and still undergoes a (too) long and complicated transition period.

.What to expect
We will have a walk around the central area and main boulevards, and I will point out to you the most emblematic Art Deco and Modernist landmarks of the city. I will explain the historical and social context of the inter-war years and the modernist movement in Romania.

The tour is ideally a walking tour, and we may use the car to transfer to different areas of interest. If necessary/for your convenience, I will adapt the tour to do it by car.
