"The Royal Palace (Palatul Regal)" Parliament Palace - Casa Poporului Tip by floriangn

This is the pride and joy of my country. It was built between 1927 and 1937 in neoclassical style, the palace was home to King Carol II and to his son, King Mihai I, until 1947, when the monarchy was abolished in Romania. It was inside the halls of this palace that King Mihai, aged 18, led a coup that displaced the pro-Nazi government during the World War II and put Romania on the Allies' side. Today, the former Royal palace houses the Romanian National Art Museum Today it houses our parliament.
