Bucharest Things to Do: 768 reviews and 1,773 photos
One of my favourite buildings in Bucharest and one of the most interesting examples of modern architecture in Europe, is the former Securitate building, sometimes referred to as the building shell. After it was largely destroyed by protesters in 2003, the Union of Romanian Architects built a modern building inside its ruins. So, now the lower half appears to be an old brick building while the upper half is a modern glass structure.
It is innovative modern architecture yet, at the same time, it is aesthetically pleasing.
Directions: At the north-eastern corner of Piaţa Revolutiei, on Strada Dobrescu.
