A journey into the Romanian Communist dictatorship and Ceausescu's trial and execution
The Romanian Communist tour

All the Romanians are carrying on their back a terrible weight.

Some of us realize it and speak loudly about it, some others know it but they rather keep silent....

The 45 years of the Romanian Communism changed our country dramatically - hundreds of thousands of people had been imprisoned and many of them killed by Securitate - the armed force of the Romanian Communist Party, under the direct supervision of the Soviet occupation regime. From Sighet to Periprava, from Jilava to Ramnicu Sarat, the Communist repression manage to fill the prisons and the labour camps with political prisoners and to establish a "brighter" regime based on terror and oppression.

To get the cynical perspective of this newest political direction - it was all in the name of the (labor) population, a "tremendous opportunity" to set us free ....

Having less than 1000 party members in 1944, The Romanian Communist Party, based on the second world war evolution and along with the USSR army set in Romania, managed to reach power after they won the 1946 fake elections.

Soon afterwards, the Romanian Communist Party became the only political party accepted in the country, people having a "unhealthy origin", i.e. non-communist political party members, priests, intellectuals, rich peasants, and many other figures who didn't match the "labor class portrait", lost their position, freedom or life.

The huge mechanism of people's brain washing turned on its engine.
The NEW MAN, as postulated by the Communist ideologists, was born.

Our travel agency is offering you a specialized tour on the Romanian communist regime, the 1989 revolution / coup d'état, the Ceausescu's "trial" and execution on 1989, Day of Christmas.

Our tour will take you on the streets of Bucharest, through the corridors of The Palace of the Parliament -

the second largest building in the world - the very symbol of the Romanian totalitarism, then to Targoviste - the garrison where Ceausescu's couple received his death penalty and got executed. Optionally a day tour can be organized to Jilava prison and Pitesti prison - two of the most terrifying extermination prisons in Romania.
