BACK TO THE DDR
“45,000 sections of reinforced concrete – 3 tons each. Nearly 300 watchtowers. Over 250 dog runs. 20 bunkers. 65 miles of anti-vehicle trenches – signal wire, barbed wire, beds of nails. Over 11,000 armed guards. A death strip of sand, well-raked to reveal footprints. 200 ordinary people shot dead following attempts to escape the communist regime. 96 miles of concrete wall. Not your typical holiday destination.’’
Our Dark Romania is our comprehensive road trip through the often mysterious lands of Romania tour. We’ll take you to the most important places in the story of Nicolae Ceaușescu, the former Communist dictator of Romania whose trial and execution were shown on TV around the world during the Christmas of 1989. From the place of his birth and the abandoned prison he was locked up in as a young man, to the site of his execution and the places of some of the most brutal experiments conducted under Communism. We’ll also explore the significantly eerie sights of the country from haunted forests to Dracula’s castle!
