  • We greet you in Romana Square (known by locals as Piata Romana), a very popular meeting spot, with a piping hot street snack to get your morning off to a delicious start! Then, we move away from this busy central area to discover our favourite neighbourhoods in Bucharest, which all ooze character and charm.

    Not long after the beginning of our walk, we come across our first ‘secret’ hangout favoured by locals and spot some of the biggest wall murals in the city, learning as we go about the local artists, the themes and hidden messages within their artworks, and the variety of techniques used to create them. 

    Next up is yet another high point of the morning, strolling around one of the most beautiful parts of Bucharest, as your guide points out each important landmark, explaining its significance. We walk through a maze of streets and iconic public gardens that provide stunning backdrops for your precious photo collection!

    About halfway through our Bucharest street art tour, we reach the most famous street in Bucharest, a unique place that unites the works of our most important local artists. And it’s about now that we stop for a short refreshment break in a beautiful summer garden, that doubles as a famous local bookstore.

    Zigzagging our way down the city’s busiest boulevard, we begin our approach to the most important landmark in Bucharest: Revolution Square. As we walk, your guide, who will certainly be your friend by now, shares tales of the city and its dramatic past.

    Our penultimate stop unlocks and reveals a secret hidden gem — exceptional street art within the University of Architecture. Why is it a hidden gem, we hear you ask? Because it’s not normally open to the public, but we can take you inside on this very special tour! Here, you discover three unique murals: Incredible works by some of the best local and international artists that were commissioned by us, using ticket money from the same tour you are on right now. The idea behind this is to build awareness of this beautiful art form and to encourage upcoming generations to continue ‘painting the city beautiful!’

    We are slowly approaching the end of our tour, but not before showing you one of the first Square Cat murals, a very rare blast from the past in our crazy little city. This exceptional artwork was recently restored by the artist himself and is painted on the doors of the Cinema Capitol Garden, an incredible historical site that waits in ruins for the chance of a well-deserved future!

    Our colourful tour ends here within short walking distance from University Square and Cismigiu Park. But before you go, don’t forget to ask your friend/local guide for more tips on what else to see, do, and eat in beguiling Bucharest!
