This is the place where so many lives were lost as communism fell as Nicolae Ceausescu made his final speech. One cannot imagine what it was like back in December 1989. We worth a visit and a look at the many memorials.
See one of two most important sites of the Romanian 1989 revolution, where the Romanian despot made his last speech. The area is an open plaza that accommodated tens of thousands and now has several memorials.
We visited Piata Revolutiei again this year. It marks an incredibly important time in Romania's history which led to the removal of Ceausescu. Nobody really paying much attention to the building or the monument commemorating those who lost their lives.
