About Palace Of Parliament , Bucharest
Possibly there's no other single civic building that is simultaneously a country's grandest architectural achievement and most reviled public monument. Built by the megalomaniacal communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in the 1970s as a tribute to his own perceived greatness, the construction of the Palace required putting the country into heavy foreign debt and starving the Romanian poor. It cost about 3 billion of today's euros. It also required demolishing most of Bucharest's historic civic centre including 30,000 homes and numerous religious buildings. It's purpose was to serve as the complete centre of government and as Nicolae Ceausescu's own home.
Today it is the second largest building in the world, second only to the Pentagon. Learn about the ghost stories, the secret tunnels, the amount of materials that went into the construction.
All visits are by guided tour only. Tours are not as long as some might like - only about 60 minutes, and there is a LOT of history to cover here, so read up before hand. Also, make a reservation before your visit.

Palace Of Parliament , Bucharest Reviews - Write a Review
Wonderful experience! It doesn't compare to anything else in the world! It is a building with perfect interior design that will leave you speechless and wanting more. As the building is in use the tour may change. It trully is impressive, I could not get enough and i will surely go back during summer for access to the balcony.
Very impressive building with opportunity to visit inside with a guided tour. Security is very strict and they only accept a valid passport or recognised ID card. Driving License does not count. So play safe and take your Passport. Well worth the tour which costs about £10.00
The architecture is magnificent and enormous! The tour is nice and they have some funny tour guides! From inside you can get the sense of how big it is and hear some funny stories about the kind who had built it. Definitely recommend to visit!
From a local's point of view, it doesn't seem that big, but several foreigner confirmed that it is in fact huge. Second largest building in the world. Although it did not get to serve its intended purpose, like it or not, this building occupies a bog chunk of the city center and in the end it is something unusual, which should be valued, despite its agitated history. Although the tour focuses on how big the whole thing is, it's interesting too see it from the inside too.
Our company organized for us a guided tour. Impressive - well worth the visit. As a Romanian friend told me: " too bad is inhabited by politicians" Give it a try if you can!
