What a jolly fine day out we had. 26 years after the fall of communism signs of recovery are everywhere and the capital city Bucharest is a prime example. We stayed in a secure parking area ( 50 Lei, £10 pp) right in the centre and did the bus tour (25 Lei, £5 pp) and the people’s palace tour (35Lei, £7.5). A friendlier place you couldn’t wish to visit. Click here to watch the video.
