We had an amazing and very informative tour and I strongly recommend it to anyone in Romania. It provided a very detailed explanation of a part of modern world history that is not frequently talked about. The itinerary is full of interesting sites and we were able to see so

Hello, Unfortunately, it's not up to us how the Parliament staff organizes the guided visits. Please consider that our 7 hours tour of Communist Bucharest includes more than this visit, and it's not our fault that this institution chooses to only open a small part of the monument to the public. Best, Diana
