Discover the culinary history of Romania with this fantastic Bucharest sightseeing tour which takes you through several of the city’s must-see neighbourhoods. You’ll learn about the titanic street battles between miners and students after the revolution and see stunning 19th century Neo-Romanian architecture around University Square, pausing at a beautifully restored townhouse. Here you’ll taste some typical entrees including goats cheese, cured meats and locally brewed craft beers. This is typical peasant food that will be the perfect introduction to Romanian flavours, before you move on to the vibrant Armenian Quarter and its distinctive, eclectic architecture, including the oldest known building in the capital.
In the old Jewish Quarter, taste some covrigi, a pretzel-like streetfood, and then head to Mantuleasa, one of Bucharest’s most tranquil neighbourhoods for an ice-cold Romanian beer. From here your Bucharest gift experience continues with a ride on a charming tram along famous Mosilor Street to Communist Bucharest and the legendary Obor Market. One of Bucharest’s largest peasant markets, it’s an unmissable tourist stop. You’ll be offered a taste of palinka brandy here, a platter of Romanian cheeses, and of course mici, the skinless sausage that is a delicacy here. Finish with a Wallachian donut for dessert, and your gastronomic quest through Bucharest is complete!
