Palace of Parliament

Recommended
The former House of the People is the ultimate symbol of the delusions of grandeur of Ceausescu. One of the largest buildings in the world, it was built in the 1980s over 5 years by 20 000 workmen and 400 architects. The dimensions are epic (45 000m2), with over a thousand rooms over twleve floors. Today housing the national parliament and several museums, it remains only partially used and access is restricted to certain areas.
