The Parliament Building is a really big place for such a small country!
You get that when you put a meglomaniac in power and he decides to build something. It takes a certain combination of power and ego to destroy the homes of 30,000 people, over 20 churches, and 6 synagogues. It quite beautiful inside but I have a hard time forgetting what Ceausescu did to build it.
Strange little factoid: it’s also the heaviest building in the world.
