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.
