Enormous building the 1 in europe. The vanity of a crazy dictator and his spouse who lead his people to die of starvation because of this dream

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
