the second-largest building in the world, a reminder of dictator Ceaușescu - you see momentum, interesting, worth a look, although in part - very nice English-speaking guide, interesting talks, marble, crystal, wealth - all from Romania

Its one of the largest buildings of the world (second after the Pentagon?) and definitely worth a look, especially working towards it over the main street.

I happened to visit the parliament a few times due to a conference I was taking part of, so I spent a lot of time there. The best venue I have ever stayed in , really beautiful and rather majestic

We went with not planning ahead of time. Staff told us what tours were available that day and when, so we chose nr. 4 which includes multiple rooms (also a balcony overlooking Piata Constitutiei - great place for pics), top of the building/terrace, so most of the building except the basement, and lasted ~2 h. The staff told us ahead... More

The 2 biggest building in the world apart from the pentagon, everything that it is made from came from Romania, do the guided tour if you can the tour is very informative and you get to see the splendours of Caucescu's former palace with over 300 chandeliers and marble everywhere, well worth the £6 entrance fee

The 'Palace of Causescu', a building so imposing (2nd biggest and most heavy in the world), but so hated by its native population! For me and my friend ,it was a must-see. The building itself is huge and it takes hours to cross from one side of it to the other. You can enter only with a tour guide. My... More

Must see place. We took 2 hour tour which was bit too much for us at least. There is also one hour tour available but it started later on that day so we decided to go for 2 hour tour which was starting soon. One hour would have been enough as it feels after one hour you've seen all there... More

Being the second biggest building in the world o was expecting to see something different and impressing.but really was over my expectetion.the building talks about the history of romania,about richness and poorness.the tour also includes a english guide,that helps a lot.
