The reviled dictator Nicolae Ceausescu lived in this palace for twenty-five years with his wife. It is lavishly decorated, and is perhaps the most ostentatious home any dictator ever built for himself. For example, the toilet roll holders are made of solid gold; and it has it's own cinema. Carved wood and mosaic tiles cover every surface. There are innumerable chandeliers. The cabinets are still full with the wardrobes of the palace's former occupants. A secret tunnel leads from the palace to the People's Palace and also to a nuclear bunker. Now open to the public, the palace can be visited only by guided tour. Each tour is about 45 minutes long.

Palatul Primaverii Reviews & Ratings
Fascinating insight into the private life of the Ceausescu family. I booked a private tour for 200 Lei which lasted around 2 hours and was well worth it as every room was interesting and the guide was very friendly and answered all my questions. There were other groups of tourists there but I was shown every room on my own so it felt like I had the house to myself. Recommended.
The thing is that this house makes you feel poor. Also a little bit ashamed of my own country, because we realized hom many goods we used to produce once and nowadays almost all big factories are closed. Besides this, it may be one of the best museums in Romania.
Very interesting place to visit, I highly recommend it for anyone visiting Bucharest. The house offers guided tours in both Romanian and English. They have peacocks in the garden and also a very nice cafe!
It was one of the most interesting house to visit, due to it’s history and the people who lived in it. There are some very unique architectural and design pieces there. It is intact and the guided tour gives you some interestinh pieces of information. It’s a must see for Romanians and tourists as well.
Bizarre, but fascinating! Of you want to understand Romanian recent history, you need to see this. I'd reccomend a guided tour: excellent knowledgeable people.
