Overview
Highlights
  • Get fast-track entrance and a fascinating guided tour of the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest

Description

When you can see a building from space, you know it's bound to be a statement up close. Get fast-track entrance and a guided tour of Bucharest's Palace of the Parliament, and glimpse the extravagant architectural ambition and neoclassical style evident in every square inch of the world's second-largest administrative building. Palatial is an understatement!

It's bigger than the Great Pyramid of Giza, and it's second only to the Pentagon as the largest administrative building in the world.

Make no mistake, Bucharest's Palace of the Parliament is one of the world's most impressive buildings - with a barely believable history to back it up!

Clip-clop across the pristine marble floors and take in the eccentrically opulent architecture and decor, while your guide whisks you on a mental journey into the building's history of dictators and megalomania.

Explore enormous galleries, magnificent staircases, huge convention rooms, and art-lined hallways.

Better hurry! The building is so heavy it's estimated to be sinking into the surrounding ground at a rate of 6mm every year - soon nothing will Romain!

Insider tip

The cost of heating, electricity, and lighting alone in the Palace of the Parliament exceeds $6 million per year, as much as the total cost for powering a medium-sized city!
