The Palace of Parliament

The Palace of Parliament, or House of the People as it was called in the communist regime, is one of the most magnificent buildings in the world, with an area of 330,000 square meters and more than 3,000 rooms.

Built in the 1980s, it is the second largest administrative building in the world, after the Pentagon. The Palace of Parliament is spectacular both from the outside and the inside and is decorated with luxurious furniture, mosaics in special colors, massive wooden doors, imposing sculptures, marble staircases and crystal lamps and chandeliers.

The Palace of Parliament in Bucharest has a historical significance because it was built during the communist period, representing its symbol today. Precisely because of this, after the end of the regime, the Romanians wanted to demolish the building to make way for a new beginning.

The building remained in the same place, rising definitely over Bucharest.
