If You're interested in big quantities of concrete or raw materials go ahead and be amazed! The guide will strictly abide the quantitative approach. The sole interesting aspect of this building is ignored by far. All this giant constructions were made with local construction technologies and raw materials. This aspect might highlight the self-sustainability of this small country.

The Palace of Parliament from the outside looks like a huge stone structure with modest architectural appeal. But on the inside, this colossal building (the second largest of its kind in the world) contains stunningly ornate halls, exquisitely appointed meeting rooms, and grand marble staircases that are absolutely worth visiting. All the more impressive is that it took barely over... More

If in doubt, you must do this trip! You only scratch the surface (about 5% apparently), but a very interesting visit. Make sure you keep up with the guide to hear everything. And don't forget your passport. I was expecting more details about the Ceausescu regime, but the information was fairly limited (clearly by design). Nothing else has really interested... More

Co worker and myself were sight seeing on a day off and he suggested that we take a train to the Parliament. It was raining and I didn't care as long as we were dry. We got there and we're not sure if it was a college or municipal building. We got the location and realised that we were at... More

Make sure you take your passport with you. A copy, driver's license or other form of identity is not acceptable. It is necessary to surrender your passport and collect it when leaving. The first time we went there (not aware we needed passports) was in the afternoon. The entry hall was packed. Next day we retuned at 10.15am and were... More

The scale of this building is breathtaking - the first three floors are something like 15 meters tall, and there are thirteen floors. With over 1000 rooms, this ostentatious marble building is available for hire for conferences and NATO summits. Fortunately the official tour was more to suitable for my bank balance. Getting in is a bit chaotic as you... More

It is too big. You may not realise by standing in front of it, but if you attempt to round travel around, you will eyewitness of it. Some events such as New Year, or military parades are celebrated around.
