One of the main squares of Bucharest and a busy area with cars everywhere. Most people that work in the area are walking around and there are a few shops and restaurants (not many). This area is more of a working area. There is a...More

We were with a River Cruise group from Grand Circle. They arranged to have a man describe the events of 1989 when Ceausescu was overthrown. Without a guideyou wouldn't know what you were looking at.

When I was there, protests were ongoing. That was more interesting that the square itself. Traffic is not easy.

Well the story behind the square is heart rending and triumphant at the same time. But to be honest with all the traffic hurtling by it is impossible to feel any emotion. Plus the buildings could be any boring government buildings anywhere. Better viewed at...More

Revolution Square, understand how the last Communist dictator in Eastern Europe was overthrown. View the gigantic Palace of Parliament, the second largest building in the world (after the Pentagon) with over 3,000 rooms.

So much history on this spot and it is where the Romanian people broke away from the communistic system and their leaders. The building on the site is to be demolished and they are going to build a mall in it's place.

An emotional symbol of the revolution sadly neglected in upkeep. This appears due to the conflicting feelings of the revolution we were told.

The balcony on this building is where Ceausescu gave his speeches and actually his last speech on December 21, 1989. There was a huge protest against him and it was worse the next day. Ceausescu and his wife barely escaped from this building on December...More

We have visited this square for the 2nd time since one year ago. In spite that is in the city center, and may be the famous square of the city, we have been very disappointed by the bad maintenance. The revolution monument is broken and...More

We were amazed how quiet it was and little signage to show you location of such historic events. Loved seeing and sensing the history of the place, especially the events of December 1989.

If you go to the metro at the university it's just down the main road which takes you to the park (perpendicular from the train line) it's on the right hand side.
