Huge palace that you can loose the exit. Nice rooms and great tourist guides can show you all the special corners

Located on Dealul Arsenalului in central Bucharest, it is the largest administrative building in the world. We diden't go inside in our visit. Before you go make a search about history of the building and how it was made.

The organisation was terrible, too many queues, no clear warning signs.

The tour guide could be way better and the tour itself was a bit poor.

There is a big set of queues and process that are not that clear or organized. You need to book the tour, queue to get your ticket, go to the store to queue to pay (35 lei) for the ticket and than queue to drop your passport on security and receive a metal badge before going through metal detectors (not that smart to give metal badges before the metal detector!).
Guide tour is interesting and takes around 1 hour. Not the building or the guide is fully prepared for the tour. There is a lot of room for improvements there.
Inside the building you can see and learn about the building and the communist influence on its making and the differences after the regime was changed.
It is a pity you can’t visit more (guide says we visit 10% of the building, but I’d say we visited only 3% of it) and that they are not truly prepared for a more pleasant tour.
