Stop At: Patriarchal Cathedral, Str Dealul Mitropoliei Piata Unirii, Bucharest Romania

The Radio House, the former Communist Headquarters standing in the Revolution Square, and the most famous of all: the Palace of the Parliament, where you’ll have a stop with an extensive commentary from the guide.

The largest administrative building in Europe, this palace is a monumental construction made under the command of the megalomaniac dictator Ceausescu.
