The Palace of Parliament
The second largest administration building in the world (after the Pentagon in Washington, DC), this huge palace has caused controversy since its construction. Dictator from 1974 to 1989, Nicolae Ceausescu had built this monument, demanding that only materials of Romanian origin be used.
A great place for the performances of the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra. Surrounded by gardens, this magnificent structure was completed in 1888 and renovated in 1992. Beneath the large gilded dome, there is an epic fresco in the frieze depicting the most central events in Romanian history.
Romanian village museum
On the shores of Lake Herăstrău, this museum has an excellent outdoor collection of farms, churches, mills and windmills recovered from rural Romania. Built in 1936 by royal decree, this is one of the oldest open-air museums in Europe.
Bucharest had a thriving Jewish community of over 40,000 in the early 20th century. But most of them left the region because of the communist and fascist regimes. The Museum of Jewish History dates back to 1836 and now serves as a monument.
