Overview

Highlights

  • Explore the opulent former home of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu, with an English-language guided tour
  • See the outrageous levels of luxury enjoyed by the Ceauşescus while their country went hungry under austerity measures
  • From the lavish lobby where Richard Nixon dined to the in-house cinema and pool, this tour will give you an intimate encounter with the scene of some of Romania's most dramatic historical events

Description

When anti-communist revolutionaries stormed the House of Ceauşescu in 1989, they were shocked by the opulence they found. While they went cold and hungry under the austere policies of Nicolae and Elena Ceaușescu, the country's leaders lived like royalty.

Much of the villa's contents were pillaged by protesters, but what remains is a reminder of these tumultuous events. Visiting the Ceauşescu Mansion is one of the best things to do in Bucharest for an arresting fix of cultural history.

This guided visit in English will take you on a tour of communism's breaking point in Romania, as an expert guide paints a picture of the dramatic events that led to the Ceauşescus fleeing the villa just two hours before it was stormed and ransacked by angry revolutionaries.

Explore the luxurious bedrooms, halls, gardens, bathrooms, cinema, and even the mosaic-adorned swimming pool, and discover why no politician has ever lived here since!
