After the rude ladies at the paymeny desk and the security check to rival any airport...once the tour started it was surprisinly informative and at some times enjoyable. There isnt much to see but our tour guide had a lot of " back story" to keep it interesting. Not for young kids they got bored.

in footprint, (Only Pentagon is bigger) and it's as large underground as over, take a guided tour and you will learn about the folly of mankind, I recommend this to understand where the Romanians are coming from.

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.
