This was an incredible experience, the magnitude of the building, the size of the halls and getting lost seemed to be part of the overall experience. I was walking with a French woman and neither of us could figure out how to get out-we just laughed and kept walking-going in and out of rooms and halls.

First thing to notice is gargantuan size of building. Second was names of Leopold I and Leopold II carved in stone slabs at entrance. One black man was standing near by and my thought was that it is ironic to have recognition for person responsible for millions of deaths on building called Palace of justice even it was build during his rule. Good to know is that there is no tourist entrance, you just go to entrance for non-employee - it is free, but visitor must go through security check and metal detectors. Next impression is enormous entrance hall, probably made to impress, but my feeling was that "little man" should know that justice is not for awaiting him there Probably that entrance and first floor corridor is all tourist should be walking around, but all signs are in french, so I decided to climb up to the dome, which is under reconstruction. Anything higher then 6th floor is locked, but you can wander numerous corridors and some courtrooms are not locked and interior is probably from day of opening. Upper floors are just offices, smells like grandma's closet. I managed to get one photo of dome through window of one of higher floors. Whole building needs renewing, but considering size it might be never finished. Interesting is that security didn't make fuss when we met on upper floors, they apologized nicely for not letting me into dome, since it is under construction.

Today it was covered in scaffolding so we could not get a great view, but it looked like a really impressive building with great architecture.

We try to visit Justice Palace thinking that it will be an interesting Building, but the surprise that no one from the inside know where the visitors should enter and some where surprised from our request. we make a complete tour around the building but without success. the most terrible part on the right side of the building where it seems its a empty area kept for dranks and their friends. Building so huge and Old and give the spirit of history but its not a target for tourists just to pass by for minutes.
