Untold Stories of Bucharest: Prostitution, Holocaust and Communist Terror

Anita With: Anita 28
There's a part of Bucharest's history no one tells you about... It involves stories with a supernatural twist in a cemetery that is unlike anything you've seen, a culture of decadence in the interwar period, a mass murderer, and the terror people lived in during the communist regime. We all have a dark side within - so let's see what this looked like for Romania's capital!

Moments to expect

  • Bellu Cemetery

    Bellu Cemetery

    In use since 1858, Bellu Cemetery is where the elites of Romanian politics, culture and business rest. And because of that there are intricate, beautiful and impressive tombs, sepulchres and sarcophagus to see here - some of which tell stories about supernatural events, suspicious deaths or tragic love stories. You'll also find out about weird Romanian burial rituals and views about death. This will be a unique walk in an unexpected open-air museum!

  • Interwar Bucharest and Holocaust
