Palace of Parliament Cotroceni Palace

The Palace of Parliament (also called The People’s House; 1984-1989) is the most imposing administrative building in Europe (265.000 sq. meters), second largest building in the world, after the Pentagon building in Washington.

The Cotroceni Museum was built for the Prince Ferdinand of Hohenzolern and his wife, Princess Maria of Edinburgh. Transformed later in the Children’s Palace, now the Cotroceni is the residence of the Romania Presidency.

The Village Museum is located on the Herastrau Lake bank. Its inauguration took place on May 10th, 1936. The permanent open-air exhibition contains 368 houses, household annexes, wooden churches, wayside crucifix and workshops.
