The Palace of the Parliament, also known as People’s House, as it was called during the communist regime, is one of the largest buildings in the world, with an impressive area of 330,000 square meters and more than 3,000 rooms.
Built in the 1980s, it is the second largest administrative building after the Pentagon. The palace is spectacular both outside and inside, being decorated with luxury furniture, mosaics in special colours, massive doors, imposing sculptures, marble stairs and chandeliers and crystal lamps.
The parliament has a historical importance because it was built during the communist period, representing its symbol today. Precisely because of this, after the end of the regime, the Romanians wanted to demolish the building to make room for a new beginning. However, the building remained in the same place, rising defiantly above the capital.
