This is the place where so many lives were lost as communism fell as Nicolae Ceausescu made his final speech. One cannot imagine what it was like back in December 1989. We worth a visit and a look at the many memorials.

If you go to the metro at the university it's just down the main road which takes you to the park (perpendicular from the train line) it's on the right hand side.
