One of the highlights of our stopover in Bucharest. A testament to the excesses of dictatorship. The sheer scale of the building is mind-blowing - it's the 2nd largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon. It's a government building, not a palace, so...More

It's a great place to visit, showing the vision of a dictator. One cannot come to bucharest without visiting it

The place itself is trully impressive and just being there leaves you breathless. The history behind the building and the regime that built it might give you some chills. However, the visit is a process that will take a while and will leave you asking.......More

The building is very impressive and certainly has an air about it, the inside is very intricately decorated. But the only thing our boring tour guide spoke about in each room was the colour of the carpet, the material of the wall and ceiling, and...More

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.
