Itinerary
The Walking Tour of Alternative Bucharest will explore the many different aspects of street art and urban culture alongside the history of the city. Enjoy a journey in time as you witness the city and all it's magnificent landscapes and locations that tell a story about how it came to be and where it might be headed to.

Continue your journey to the Street Delivery Festival, a symbolic gathering of civil society activists. One of their main missions is to transform the city into a better living space for humans, rather than cars, and also to promote the street art movement in a country where it's still largely frowned upon.

Discover one of Bucharest's untouched areas, where it feels as if time stood still. It is also a location where you will explore the history of the city and its urban development: from its humble beginnings to its avant-garde architecture of the inter-war period.
