It was built from 1984 to 1990-ish. It housed Nicolae Ceauşescu, the Romanian communist party leader/ dictator until he was killed in 1989.
It’s the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon.
After the tour, I had lunch and found a yoga studio to try that evening. It was called HotPod Yoga.
And of course I had a healthy and well balanced dinner after sweating my ass off.
