" Not so ugly at a closer look..." People's Palace (Parliament Palace) Tip by gosiaPL

  Ceaucescu arches
by gosiaPL

Favorite thing: Ceaucescu's giant palace, now the Parliament House, may be evoking different reactions, but it sure is more pleasing to the eye when you look at some architectural details.

I was stunned to see the narrow arches and columns as a frequently repeated pattern in various types of secular buildings: the Parliament House, the National Theatre, the airport and many other. I guess I will always associate the narrow arches with Bucharest!
