Meet your guide for a savory Romanian street snack in University Square. Learn about the 1989 revolution that threw off years of communist dictatorship and opened the door to a new future. Then, venture into a charming Armenian neighborhood.

The Funky Citizens seeks to fight corruption in Romania. With members of the nonprofit, tour one of its projects, the “80s east apartment,” a re-creation of a typical communist apartment, usually reserved for academics.
Take the trolley to University Square and see a social enterprise that brings together high-end designers and Roma craftspeople. Here, the Roma, among the most persecuted during the war and beyond, practice traditional crafts like pounding copper. Then stop for a quick, exclusive look at some of the most impressive street art in the city, hidden on the terrace of the University of Architecture.
The Italian influence in Bucharest is showing up in its emerging coffee scene. Attend an exclusive coffee brewing workshop led by some of Bucharest’s most skilled baristas.
