Marvel at the Palace of the Parliament

Once known as the People’s Palace, the Palace of the Parliament is an astounding structure in Bucharest that attracts visitors from across the world. The building itself has a history of sorrow, sweat and injustice but it is magnificent and worth visiting to learn about Romania’s past.

A dark history


In 1983, the Communist dictator at the time, Nicolae Ceausescu, decided he would do something to amend this and began construction on what he called The People’s Palace. This huge building needed space, so he began tearing down most of the ancient city, including 22 churches, six synagogues and Jewish temples and 30,000 homes. It is said that it took 20,000 builders, who worked non-stop day and night until the Romanian Revolution of 1989 began. During that same revolution, Ceausescu was found guilty on a number of charges including genocide and was executed, ending his reign.

Visit the world’s second largest building


If you are interested in Romanian history, then this should be first on your attractions list. You can take a guided tour of the building; however, you will only get to see five percent. There is an undisclosed amount of underground stories and the guides certainly aren’t spilling any secrets, but you will learn a great deal of this country’s past.

There are a number of events held in the palace each year, in its International Conference Center. If you are planning a business event or conference, it is possible to hire out one of the many rooms in the Palace of the Parliament. For those looking for small meeting and events rooms, Park Inn by Radisson Bucharest Hotel & Residence have four flexible meeting rooms of various sizes. We also offer catering services for events at many locations within the city or outside. Stay at Park Inn by Radisson and be near all the best attractions in the city.
