Lonely Planet review for Palace of Parliament
The Palace of Parliament is the world's second largest building (after the US Pentagon). Built in 1984 (and still 10% unfinished), the building's 12 storeys and 3100 rooms covers 330,000 sq metres - an estimated three billion Euro project. Rushed, but interesting, 45 minutes tours go every half hour or so and lead into a handful of marble rooms - still rented out for conferences - finishing at the balcony Nicolae didn't live long enough to speak from.
