The Palace of Parliament

"People's House"

One of the most interesting to visit touristic objectives in Bucharest is the Palace of Parliament. No matter how many other palaces have you visited in your lifetime, this grand edifice will impress you with its size and its architectural style. Did we say „architectural style”? In fact, most of the architects blame this palace for not having one, but more architectural styles, all-in-one.
Also called the People's House, during Ceausescu’s regime, this building is, in fact, a symbol of the old communist times, an extravagance if you want to put it that way. Thanks to its solid wood furniture, crystal chandeliers, impressive dimensions, huge marble columns and other carefully chosen interior design elements for each room, this palace is one of the most visited touristic objectives in Bucharest.
