I joined a post cruise tour with AMA waterways and visited the inside of this huge Palace of Parliament. The security in the place is very tight so you need to register before you can visit. You are only allowed to see less than 1%...More

Symbol of Romania and comunism. Designed by only 28 year old architect, was built 1983 - 1989. During a nearly 2 hours trip you wil walk 2,5 km distance incl. basements. It's just 3% of all rooms. Worth of sight seeing.

This is about a 1.5-hour walking tour which is well worth the admission fee one pays for it. Be prepared for the tight security and bring your passport as you need to leave this with the security people but they give this back to you...More

We got a tip from a friend saying this was a must see in Bucharest. She was absolutely right! It's a perfect display of the madness of the communist regime, especially that of Ceausescu. The building itself is also very impressive with it's big halls...More

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
