In those 4 cities I've visited such edifices, a strong (and ugly) reminder of the Soviet domination past. Also the order from my headline resembles their grandeur. The biggest are in Moscow, the famous seven sisters, while this in Bucharest is the smallest one. There's...More

Didn't get to go inside this huge Communist style building, but taxi driver made sure to point it out and tell me about it. It's a pretty ugly building- typical of the style... did remind me of Stalin's sisters in Russia.

This structure is worth seeing, as it is a perfect example of the colossal architectural style during Romaina's communist past.

Whenever I get a chance to walk or drive by this building, I somehow hope I'd be lucky enough to visit it. Unfortunately, it's still not accessible to the public, so one can only stare at the Communist-looking structure from the outside.
