The most important information you need is BRING ALL YOUR PASSPORTS! one is not enough. Even the kids need them (quite ridiculous really) without them you will not be allowed to buy a ticket (we had to go back to the hotel and get them)....More

The palace is incredible. You can enter only with a guide. Our guide, Alexandru, was great, fun and prepared. The place totally deserves to be visited!

I never saw such a big building before (2nd largest after pentagon). If you're in Bucharest - it is must see object.

We took a tour of the inside of the Parliament - it was awesome. The place is enormous and well decorated - loads of room. Not to be missed.

Very beautiful visit to the Parliament building. Several tours in English per day, you can also call and book it. We took the only tour in Spanish of the day and it was not very crowded. Amazing stories and beautiful decoration. Worth a visit.

On the one hand this massive, tasteless out-of-scale monument to a deposed dictator is a grand folly! On the other it's grand highly embellished marble, wood and crystal interiors are world treasures! It's a must see monument in Romania-

This is probably the most known building in Bucharest and it's worth a visit. The whole story of the building and why/how it was constructed is maybe not so nice for Romanians. But it is a somewhat impressive building and I recommend a visit.

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
