The tour includes the military base in Targoviste where the Ceausescu couple was judged and executed, Revolution Square in Bucharest and last but not least Ceausescu's greatest creation - the Parliament Palace also known as 'House of the People'.
We will be tracing the communist dictator's steps, seeing places where the Ceausescu couple had stayed to the place where they escaped before being captured and executed on Christmas Eve in 1989.
Targoviste Military Barracks - Targoviste is a small town located in south-eastern Romania, which became famous due the fact that here the communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was executed in 1989. Former barracks where him and his wife, Elena Ceausescu were executed after a very short trial, were turned into museum and open for the public.
Bucharest - The Palace of the Parliament is the second largest building after the Pentagon. The Palace was designed and nearly completed by the Ceausescu regime as the seat of political and administrative power. Nicolae Ceausescu named it the House of the Republic, but many Romanians call it the People's House.
Revolution Square where we will see the former communist offices of Ceausescu and the site where the 1989 Revolution started in Bucharest, the memorial plaque with all the names of the people that died fighting for freedom and monument in their memory.
