Ceaușescu's famous speeches in 1968. and 1989. were held in this square. From the Romanian Communist party building, Ceaușescu and his wife fled with the helicopter. We all know what happened afterwards.

So much history on this spot and it is where the Romanian people broke away from the communistic system and their leaders. The building on the site is to be demolished and they are going to build a mall in it's place.

If you go to the metro at the university it's just down the main road which takes you to the park (perpendicular from the train line) it's on the right hand side.
