“Huge!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Although Romanians are not proud of it, it's huge and spectacular! The second largest building in the world after the Pentagon apparently. Worth a visit - you never imagine a place could be this huge and grand.

“Better than on the picture”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

It is so huge, so big and so beautiful (again in the dark). Probably next time when we will have more time, we will see more details and discover all the hidden treasures, but from this quick run - it is worth to visit)

“BIG BIG BIG!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

On e of attractions that you have to see in Bucharest! It is big big big, first you will be amazed with large building but when you come inside you will se giganticdance room. This is second biggest building after Pentagon and heaviest in the world. Because of all marble. you will see a lot of pink marble, interesting fact is they spend all supplies of that pink stone in that building. And you ant find it anywhere in Romania!!!Some of the people were buried alive in the walls because they didn't wanted to move from their houses that were on that part of land. Magnificant buildings and incredible stories! must see!!!!! you will pay fee. if you are student you have discount(but only if you are ROMANIAN STUDENT) our ISIC that is international student card didn't help us :/

“Just OK”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

The building is huge and they have multiple types of tours - you can just see the main rooms or select roof and basement option. The decorations and architecture are magnificent however the tour is disappointing. Guide just quoted bunch of data - weight of the chandelier or curtains, how many square meters of this and that ... really a waste of time. Overall worth seeing but keep your expectations low.

Prices - regular tour 25 lei p/p plus 30 lei for camera to take pictures.
