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.

Mamed after the 1989 Romanian Revolution, where Communism was overthrown, this square is surrounded by some of the more important and interesting buildings in Bucharest and therefore worth the visit.

Ceaușescu's famous speeches in 1968. and 1989. were held in this square. From the Romanian Communist party building, Ceaușescu and his wife fled with the helicopter. We all know what happened afterwards.

The square itself is not interesting but looking toward the buildings and finding out what happened here is.

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.
