This is the site where Ceaucescu rose and fell. A stark unappealing monument reminds us of the great sacrifice of the Romanian people. Ceausescu's rise wasn't just because the Romanians were looking for ideological empowerment to restore their national image, but the whole world fell...More

This is a point in Bucharest, which would be nice when the monument and the square devoted to the victins of 1989 revolution was kept in a proper shape. Unfortuanately it is not. I was a bit disgusted seeing the lack of care for this...More

Check out the former Central Committee building where Ceauşescu gave his final speech. The next day he and Elena escaped from the roof by helicopter. There is a sign in front of the building with the story.

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.

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.
