  piata unirii
by Mr_Furious

Piata Unirii is the central square of what is called the 'centru civic', a surreal area built by the great dictator in an attempt to create the ultimate communist city. The area is centered around the parlamentul and walking around can be a strange experience because of the unfiished buildings, the lack of pedestrians and megalomania that characterizes most of the buildings.

Directions: take the metro to the Piata Unirii stop and walk to the middle of the square to get a general idea.
