Piata 21 Decembrie 1989 - Piata Universitatii

Dominated by the huge university buildings (1868), the institute of architecture with its fine façades and the elegant students' church (1909), this square occupies a poignant place in the Romanian collective memory: it was the scene of much bloodshed during the 1989 revolution and student demonstrations the following year. Numerous plaques and crosses commemorate the many who died here.
