"The Senate" Senate Tip by viddra

Senate, Bucharest: 3 reviews and 7 photos

by viddra

This robust building was constructed in 1940. It now houses the Senate and the Ministries of Workforce and Health.

In the Communist period this was the headquarters of the Communist Party and it was called CC (initials of Comitetul Central-The Central Party Committee).

The small white marble pyramid with a flame sculpted out of earth stands here in memory of those who died here during the 1989 Romanian Revolution.

This is also the place from which Ceausescu, the former dictator left by helicopter, only to be captured, tried and shot in the following hours.

Address: Revolution Square
