What to Expect
The 4 hours tour introduces you to the traditional Romanian village,and shows you the megalomaniac construction built by the communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.

THE PALACE OF PARLIAMENT( formerly known as The People's House) was built by the Communist leader Nicolae Ceausescu,between 1984 and 1989.The colossal building is the second largest administrative edifice in the world,after the Pentagon.The twelve-storied palace boasts 1.100 rooms,a 328-ft-long lobby and four underground levels.At present,the Palace of Parliament hosts The Senate and The House of Representative,The Constitutional Court,The Museum of Contemporary Art and the International Conference Centre.Since 1990,several international events took place here,such as The Crans Montana Business Forum in 1996,Shimon Peres-Yasser Arafat meeting and,the most important,the NATO Summit in 2008.

The Village Museum(open air)or The Romanian Peasent Museum

The Village Museum,an open air exhibition,located on the shores of Herastrau Lake,is an impresive collection of homesteads,mills,churches and windmills,relocated from different rural areas of the country.Built in 1936,the museum is one of Europe's oldest open -air museums and it is the second largest museum in Europe,after the one in Stockholm.As strange as it may sound, the museum hosts,in a cellar room,a collection of a Romanian communist leaders and heart-rending accounts of those who opposed collectivization.(Separate & optional cost if you want to visit it)
