Palace of Parliament is a must-see if you are in Bucharest. You will see very interesting things while you're visiting with organized tours.

This building of unnecessary opulence is a must see and helps one understand what Romaians went through in the Communist times.

This is one place every tourist should go at least once. I'm not sure I will have to go back, but it is fascinating when it comes to its history and the history of communism. The tour guide is nice and informative.
