Palace of the Parliament tour - Bucharest
A guided tour of The Palace of the Parliament, also known as The People's Palace. Although the tour only covers about 5% of the building, we see some of the grand architecture and design. Ceausescu's demands for opulence meant everything had to be built on a grand scale, not matter what the cost.... and this building is no exception. This is the second biggest administrative building in the world (after The Pentagon) and is also the heaviest. It's also the most expensive in Europe.

On a visit to Bucharest, the Palace of the Parliament is a must-see to understand where the country has come from since its rise from Communism in 1989 after overthrowing Nicolae Ceauşescu.

DICTATORS AND PALACES IN BUCHAREST
Romania is Booming. Today we visited the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest. It is the third largest building in the world by volume and the 2nd largest admin building in the world behind the Pentagon. It was built by a dictator and essentially bankrupted the country.

The palace of parliament, Bucharest, Romania
The palace of the Parliament is a colossal building, designed and supervised by chief architect Anca Petrescu with a team of approximately 700 architects, and was constructed over a period of 13 years (1984–97). It was built as a monument for a totalitarian kitsch style of architecture and modernist Neoclassical architectural forms and styles,] with socialist realism in mind. The Palace was ordered by Nicolae Ceaușescu (1918–1989), the Communist leader of Romania. After the Romanian uprising in December 1989 it became widely known as The People's House. Due to its impressive endowments, events organized by state institutions and international bodies such as conferences, symposia, and others take place there, but even so about 70% of the building almost four decades later still remains empty.
Romania: Bucharest and the Palace of Parliament
We packed up our things and as a class headed from Moldova to Bucharest Romania. Again, most of our time spent in Romania was at companies learning about the Romanian transformation over the past few decades. Two of the most interesting parts of the trip was the visit to the palace of parliament (The peoples house) and Halewood vineyards. The three days in Romania were amazing and it would be nice to go back and see more of the country.
We do apologize for the video quality. The majority of the footage was shot on a Samsung galaxy s6.
Palace of the Parliament + Nicolae Ceausescu Mansion | Bucharest
It's impossible to miss the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest - like literally impossible. It's huge. It's the heaviest building in the world. We tried to dive just a little bit deeper to discover more about the man who commissioned it - Nicolae Ceausescu - by visiting the mansion he lived in during his time in office. It's a complicated history, one that we admittedly only have a very basic understanding of, but the buildings were awe inspiring.

World’s 2nd Largest Building - Bucharest Palace of the Parliament
Visit the World’s 2nd Largest Building - Bucharest Palace of the Parliament. The only administrative building which is larger is the Pentagon!
We catch the City Sightseeing Hop on / hop off bus tour directly to the palace of the parliament in Bucharest, Romania. Once there we take a tour through this massive building and cover only about 5% of the interior in roughly an hour. It is huge!
Be warned that you must like stairs if you take this guided tour, for there are so many stairs in the Palace of the Parliament. But it's worth it because this is definitely one of the best things to do in Bucharest.
My recommendation - don't miss the Palace of the Parliament tour if you are ever in Bucharest, Romania. It truly is a must-see attraction.

Dimenzijama od 270 m na 240 m, 86 m visoka i 92 m podzemno - spada u drugu po veličini zgrada na svijetu. Ona ima 1100 soba, dvije podzemne garaže i ima ukupno 12 katova. Četiri etaže trenutno su dostupne za širu javnost i u uporabi.Ukupna površina je 340.000 m2.

Zasigurno jedna od najinteresantnijih građevina koju čovjek zasigurno treba vidjeti vlastitim očima. Fascinantno . . . . . .
A i povjesna ličnost koja je na balkonu te zgrade održala svoj posljednji govor i obratila se narodu koji mu je i presudio - razlog je više zbog čega je treba posjetiti.

다뉴브 강과 흑해 사이의 드넓은 평야를 떠나 다시 루마니아의 수도 부쿠레슈티로 향했다. 1980년대 부쿠레슈티 도심이 철거되고 그 자리에 세계에서 가장 무거운 건물이 세워졌다. 절대 무너지지 않을 궁전을 짓기 위해 독재자는 만 채의 집과 삶을 파괴했다. “이 궁전은 그냥 세계에서 가장 큰 건물들 중 하나가 아니라 펜타곤에 이어서 두 번째로 큰 건물입니다. 건물의 양식을 보시면 공산주의와는 별로 관련이 없어 보일 텐데요. 오히려 왕실의 분위기에 가깝죠. 저쪽에는 수많은 계단이 있는데 마치 루이 14세가 거닐고 있을 것만 같은 느낌을 주죠.” 루이 14세처럼 이곳을 걷고 싶었을 차우셰스쿠는 이 대리석 궁전이 완성되는 것을 보지도 못한 채 권좌에서 쫓겨났다. 하지만 화려한 궁전은 그대로 남아 지금은 패션쇼, 사업설명회 등을 위해 사용되고 있다. “이 건물에서 가장 큰 커튼입니다 .한 쪽의 무게가 200kg이고 길이는 15m에 달합니다. 믿기지 않을 숫자들이 이 건물에는 많이 있습니다. 샹들리에의 숫자만 2,800개입니다. 누군가 이 건물을 아주 잘 묘사한 적이 있는데 ‘과대망상증 환자의 작품’이라고 말했죠. 하지만 동시에 평범한 사람들의 기술과 노력으로 만들어진 곳이기도 합니다.” “아직 박수 소리가 들리시죠? 니콜라이 차우셰스쿠가 연설을 한 후에 사람들이 박수를 친다고 상상해봅시다. 100명이 박수를 쳐도 300명이 친 것처럼 들리게 하면 더 좋겠죠? 많을수록 더 좋은 겁니다. 희열에 빠지는 거죠. 그 희열을 느끼게 하는 게 이 방의 목적이었습니다. 사람들이 얼마나 차우셰스쿠를 사랑하는지 그가 얼마나 사랑받는 지도자인지 다른 나라에 보여주기도 좋죠. 아니면 그냥 자기만족을 위한 것이었을 수도 있고요. 어느 쪽이든 가능합니다. 저는 여기에 좋은 역사적인 교훈이 있다고 생각합니다. 그런 사회에서는 수많은 사람들이 그 체제에 기여합니다. 절대로 한 명이 모든 역할을 다할 수는 없습니다. 한 사람이 큰 그림을 그리더라도 그걸 따라주는 사람들이 있어야 하죠.” 하지만 그를 위해 동원된 군중들 틈에서 어느날 갑자기 야유의 소리가 터져나왔을 때 이십사 년의 독재 체제는 급격히 무너지기 시작했다. 성난 군중의 함성에 놀란 차우셰스쿠는 헬기로 탈출을 시도했지만 4일 뒤 체포되어 처형당했고 절대 끝나지 않을 것 같던 차우셰스쿠의 시대도 막을 내렸다. 이십구 년 전 바로 이 자리에서 차우셰스쿠를 도망치게 한 건 평범한 사람들의 용기였다. “저는 위험하다고 말렸어요. 그런데 아들은 그렇게 해야만 한다고 했어요. 더 이상 이렇게 살 수는 없다면서요. 그 때 아들은 겨우 고등학교 1학년이었어요.” 평범한 사람들의 혁명은 여전히 진행 중이다. 정부의 관리 감독 부실로 40여명이 클럽에서 사망한 2015년, 루마니아 국민들은 광장에 모여 총리의 사퇴를 이끌어냈다. 2017년, 정부가 비리 공직자를 사면하려 하자 다시 50만 명이 광장에서 스마트폰의 불빛을 들었고 총리는 결국 물러났다. “지난 겨울에 있었던 시위에 참여하셨나요?” “네. 참여했어요. 우리는 시위에 참여할 만한 개인적인 이유가 있었어요. 정말 좋은 친구가 한 명 있었는데요. 지금은 더 이상 이 세상에 없어요. 클럽에서 일어난 화재 사고 때문에 친구를 잃었어요. 그리고 그 친구를 생각하면서 시위에 참여했어요. 그런 일들이 더 이상 일어나면 안 되니까요. 그 일이 없었다면 친구가 살아서 집에 돌아왔을 거고 모든 건 제자리로 돌아갔을 거예요. 그런 생각을 하면서 사위에 참여한 거예요. 너도 마찬가지지?” “응.” 어쩌면 개인적이고 평범한 이유들이 모여 불가능해보이던 먼 길을 함께 걸어냈고 그렇게 민주화를 이룬지 이십 년 째, 루마니아의 혁명은 계속 되고 있다.

Leaving the vast plains between the Danube and the Black Sea and heading back to Bucharest, the capital of Romania. In the 1980s, the city center of Bucharest was demolished and the world's heaviest building was built there. To build a palace that would never collapse, the dictator destroyed 10,000 houses and life. This palace is not just one of the largest buildings in the world, but the second largest building after the Pentagon. If you look at the style of the building, it does not seem to have much to do with communism. It is rather a royal atmosphere. There is a lot of stairs over there, and it makes me feel as though Louis XIV is walking around. Like Louis XIV, Ceauşescu, who wanted to walk here, was expelled from the throne without seeing the completion of this marble palace. But the gorgeous palace remained intact and is now being used for fashion shows and business briefings. This is the largest curtain in the building, weighing 200kg on one side and 15m in length. There are many numbers in this building that you can not believe. The number of chandeliers is only 2,800. Someone has described this building very well and said it's a piece of paranoia. But at the same time, it was created by the skill and effort of ordinary people. Do you hear applause yet? Imagine people applauding after Nicolai Ceauşescu gave a speech. It would be better if you let 100 people hear the clapping of 300 people. The more the better. It's a joy. It was the purpose of this room to feel that joy. It's nice to show people how much he loves Ceausescu and how he is loved. Or maybe it was just for self-satisfaction. Either way. I think there is a good historical lesson here. In such a society, a large number of people contribute to the system. One person can never do all the work. One person has a big picture, but there must be some people who will follow it...
