“Moving memorial to communism in Romania”

Memorial of the Victims of Communism and of the Resistance
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 August 2018

Though the former Sighet prison exhibits are mostly in Romanian, all of the presentations have been very well done, and translations in many languages are available. Important to visit this site to truly understand the history and oppression this country endured.

We learned so much about the history of Romania from this museum. There is a written guide in English that summarizes the different displays in the museum. Difficult but interesting time in Romanian history.

I really liked it! They caption are all in Romanian but I received a book guide in my language (Italian) where everything was explained very well.
The museum is located in a ex jail which gives the tourist the opportunity to "enter in history".
I really recommend it if you visit the city.

Well worth the visit as a reminder of how ruthless and brutal we can be to each other in the name of political goals. If I read Romania I probably would have spent twice as long here. Don't miss the chapel and sculpture in the courtyard. No language is required to appreciate that space.

The comunism was somerhing horible. This location means a lot for romanian history. The prison and the personal clothes of the prisoners is like a piece of horror movie. Unfortunately it was real.
