One must see the parliament building from up close to appreciate its size, the amount of work and craftsmanship that went into building it and the megalomania behind it. The tour was made so much better by the excellent and energetic guide Alexandru!

Brilliant but must remember your passport to get in. Charge varies depending on how much of the building you wish to access. Plenty of photo opportunities of the outside of the building.

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
Do you know if they except credit card for tour or do you have to pay cash
