This is a jaw-dropper! Ceausescu had a sixth of Bucharest flattened to make space for this project, and it kept 20,000 workers and 700 architects busy round-the-clock for 5 years during the main period of construction. The building is 90% complete and has no A/C.
You need to buy your ticket from the souvenir shop at the entrance (about $7). The palace is closed when the Romanian parliament is in session, but even if you can not go inside, go there and take some pictures of the building.
