We paid for a standard English tour of the Palace of Parliament . It is an enormous, imposing building from the outside and fascinating inside. There was a hefty security check to get in but we felt it was worth it. Our guide was pleasant, informative and adept at managing a small group. In just over an hour we saw... More

A place you must see in case you travel to Bucharest . Once you get just close to it you will be impressed from his majesty. The inside is worth a look . The rooms and saals are something that will leave you worthless due to the luxury . Also you can have a clear idea about how a "single... More

Waist of time and money. A huge building with a lot of rooms but the visit is restricted to few of them. It would be very interesting to be able to visit the whole structure. Unfortunately this is not possible from whatever reasons.

After 30 years I had to visit this horrible place again, with a group from France, so I am going to tell you what I've told them too. Altough it is a very big attraction for foreigners, the real history of this place it is not known even by a lot of Romanians. First of all, Ceausescu ordered this building... More

Equally beautiful in the morning as it is at night. Majestic building, and for sure not appreciated to its full until seen by your own eyes.

When visiting Bucharest you shouldn't miss this Palace. 1. It's huge 2. It has lots of history and character 3. It's beautifut 4. If you plan to visit it, be noted, that you'll be sighned in exact time (we came in 10-30 and nearest international group was for 11-15 - so be prepared). They also take your passport and return...

There are long queues to get on the guided tour but it goes quite fast. You need to take your valid Passport which they will return at the end of your visit. The tour Guides are very nice and knowledgeable and really contribute to a very pleasant tour. Photos are not allowed, only on the balcony. Wear comfortable shoes as... More
