The Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest is the city’s main attraction for tourists.

Right in the historical and geographical centre of Bucharest stands an impressive building that strikes one’s eye by its particular style. It is the Palace of the Romanian Parliament, a “giant” built during the “golden age” of the dictatorial regime and born in the mind of a man (Nicolae Ceausescu) for whom the notion of “reasonable size” did not exist. See my previous post on the history of this building here.
