The Palace of Parliament (Palatul Parlamentului) in Bucharest is one of the most impressive buildings in the Romanian capital in terms of size. Worldwide, it is also one of the largest administrative buildings. The 270 meter long front of the building faces the beautiful street Bulevardul Unirii. The building was commissioned by the dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu, who did not live to see its completion in 1997, and has since housed the Romanian Chamber of Deputies.
