Never had anything to do with a free free just the opposite. An imposing example of the ugliness of most "communist" style buildings. You can see them still in most of the ex-Warsaw Pact countries. One wester writer once titled a chapter of his "travel"...More

Having seen all the 'Seven Sisters' plus the Triumph Palace, the new 'Eight Sister', in Moscow we immediately recognised this impressive edifice on first glimpsing it on our way from the airport. It was fascinating to discover that a race track was the predecessor of...More

Whenever I get a chance to walk or drive by this building, I somehow hope I'd be lucky enough to visit it. Unfortunately, it's still not accessible to the public, so one can only stare at the Communist-looking structure from the outside.

It's good Just for a fast view during a walk to the metro or the surrounding area. Better try it before 10 or after 18:00 as it is very hot.

A building 100% communisto/stalinist at the entrance to Bucharest. Wass the centrum of the communist press before 1989 is is now the presshouse of the same journals but with changed name.

If you are in Bucharest you can miss the House of the Free Press. You can only visit from outside because inside is the Romanian television so it is not allow to the public.

If you go to the airport you can not miss this building. It is very impressive and huge. If you have time, just stop there and walk around.

This is a huge building, which you cannot ignore while entering the city (coming from the airport). The building features very distinct Communist elements, and I'm not sure if it is considered an eye sore or not. The building is not accessible to the public.

Another huge building in Bucharest which cannot be missed! Very grand in the main road and next to a beautiful park with a statue outside on the island. You cannot help but be impressed by architecture of this size
