I have lived in Romania, I am born here and I saw the Bucharest town transformation in order to build this giant building. I have never visited it in a tour guide, without having in mind a well defined reason. Perhaps, because it is in my home proximity (I arrive there by foot) and as far I know, needs a serious preparation, the visit being absolutely guided and for a limited number of people. However, this building exists grace to our past and last mad mind dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu (absolute Romanian leader from 1965 to 1989, and leader before, since 1946). As far as I know, it is the second large administrative building in the World, after Pentagon, i.e. first in Europe with regards to this category. This attracts mainly foreigners and increasing number of Romanians who would appreciate it as a present result, people sufferings for it remaining in the history.
The building seems unique in its exterior architecture, apparently not very regular and by far very large. It is encountered by a total length of about 4 km roads, subject to the annual Bucharest cross and as well marathon, in beginning October. I have briefly seen the building interior in my participation to the Water Conference: the spaces are large and one would see a lot of marble, since the Ceausescu leader was very found of this construction material, not available at that time for ordinary people funeral monuments.
For its singularity, I admit this building became emblematic for Bucharest and I intend really to pay it a visit, not too far in time.
