Okay, so the only thing that commends this building is its size (second only to the Pentagon in Washington, DC). We heard this over and over again as we toured the Parliament Palace. It is a monstrosity built by a monster, and why the Romanian people have let it remain is a mystery -- it is empty, unfurnished, cold, and creepy. We had to be searched in order to tour, and there is a sign saying that people who stray from the tour are subject to arrest. I can understand the threat, because after 20 minutes, we were all ready to bolt! We still had 60 minutes of the tour left, so we all stopped asking questions and just hustled our guide through her paces. If you are/were a Michael Jackson fan, the highlight of the guide's tour was a trip to the balcony where Jackson greeted his fans in Bucharest. Whoopee! My advice would be to walk around outside and call it a day.
