Palace Of Parliament Map pp

Itucharest's (and indeed Romania's) infamous star attraction, the Palace of Parliament (Palatul Parlamentului; Map pp54-5; ©311 3611; [email protected]; Calea 13 Septembrie 1; adult/student €3/ 1.50; ®10am-4pm) is the big mama of monstrous buildings. Conceived at the height of Ceau§escu's Communist fervour it was called, ironically, the House of the People (Casa Poporului) before 1989. The enormous showcase of Romanian craftsmanship with 12 floors now houses the chamber of deputies in its grandiose innards. The 45-minute tour (in English, French or Romanian) is a staggering insight into Ceau-ijescu's ego-driven vision (see the boxed text on p58).
