Your tour begins at the popular University Square, taking in Coltea Church and Coltea Hospital, the statue of Mihail Cantacuzino and King Carol the First. We move on to the spectacular Intercontinental Bucharest Building, which has a very interesting and politically diverse history. You will then pass Kretzulescu Church, a fine example of Brâncovenesc style architecture, built in 1722, surviving Turkish occupation, two world wars, being marked for demolition by Ceausescu and the 1977 Earthquake. This building now stands proud in the heart of Bucharest as a symbol of the dedication and resilience of the Orthodox Christian Community of Romania. Next you will visit Revolution Square. You will  learn about the 1989 Revolution, see where it all happened, where Nicolae Ceausescu's Communist Romania fell when he and his wife fled by helicopter on December 22, 1989. You will then move to the Anthenaeum Palace, possibly Bucharest's most popular building, this exquisite concert hall was built in 1888 in the Neo- classical French style of the era. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and statues this is often the scene for a summer wedding or live TV transmission for major cultural events in Bucharest.
