Palace of Parliament: What is Romania's most famous building, known as "Casa Poporului" or People's Palace, was built during the darkest days of the Ceausescu regime. Standing 84m above ground level on 12 floors, and 92m underground, the building has long been shrouded in mystery, rumour and hyperbole. Originally designed to house almost all the organs of the communist state, it today plays host to the Romanian Parliament, few state authorities and a modern well equipped conference & exhibition center. You will see plenty of grand staircases, marble-plated halls and conference rooms, while you'll also have the chance to go on the balcony, which offers a defining view oh Bucharest. After the 1989 revolution there were plans to blow the building up, but the cost of explosives proved prohibitive. Instead, the building was adapted to house the Romanian Parliament as well as conference and exhibitions centre. A part of the building, however, remains unused.
