Why visit Palace of Parliament?

Did you know?
  • The Palace of Parliament Bucharest has several names that mirror its rich history and political importance. Locals often refer to it as the "People's House Bucharest" or "People's Palace Bucharest," while other titles like the "Palace of the People," "House of the Republic," "Romanian Parliament," and "The Ceausescu Palace" are also used.
  • The Palace of Parliament serves a variety of purposes, housing not only the Romanian Parliament but also museums and conference centers. It's home to the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate and even offers exhibition spaces. Beneath its many floors, you'll find nuclear bunkers and hidden tunnels, adding to its intrigue.
  • The Palace's construction stirred a lot of controversy, displacing thousands of residents and sparking widespread dissatisfaction. Entire neighborhoods were razed overnight, forcing over 40,000 people out of their homes and demolishing 9,000 houses, as well as historic landmarks and churches.
  • Maintaining the massive Palace of Parliament building comes at a hefty price, with an annual upkeep cost exceeding 6 million euros. This covers preservation efforts to safeguard the building's structure and preserve its opulent interiors.
  • About 100,000 workers were involved in building the People's Palace in Bucharest, with a whopping 20,000 working round the clock in three shifts. Sadly, quite a few lost their lives in accidents on the job.

Clear instructions and loved the visit of house of Parliament in Bucharest. I get the fact that it's convenient to make a group on WhatsApp, but I don't like that. Also the rudeness of people who were being warned about not being late for the tour and still sending messages like: can you wait ten minutes or 5.
