Palace of Justice, Bucharest: 4 reviews and 12 photos
The Palace of Justice was built between 1890 and 1895 in French Renaissance style. The main facade is dominated by six strong pillars and four statues (Law, Rightfulness, Justice and Truth) placed in special niches, while the other two (Strength and Prudence) lie on the sides of the clock. Inside the building there is the famous ?Hall of the Lost Steps?, with a reference to those losing trials, this hall taking about one fourth of the whole surface. In 1985 President Ceausescu intended to have it demolished (at a certain point he wanted to move the institution to the new megastructure he was building on the former site of Vacaresti Monastery), as it spoiled the ?great quarter? he was building to the South, as well as the ?new Dambovita?; it is still unknown how it could survive.
Address: 4 Splaiul Independentei
Directions: From Unirea Square take Dambovita River to the West; it is the first building on your left after the communist concrete apartment buildings.
