Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei) is an important square worth seeing in the Romanian capital Bucharest. It is located in the central part of the city and right next to the beautiful Calea Victoriei street, which you should also see.

Revolution Square Bucharest

Revolution Square plays an important role in Romanian history. During the Romanian Revolution of 1989, it was the scene of mass protests against the communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu, which ultimately led to the fall of the dictator and Romania’s integration into the EU. Today, however, Revolution Square is still a place of remembrance, with the Memorial of Rebirth (Memorialul Renasterii) at its center. The square is also surrounded by other important buildings. These include the Biblioteca Centrala Universitara building, in front of which stands the equestrian statue (Ecvestra Statuia lui Carol I). You will also find the National Art Museum (Muzeul National de Arta) and the fountain (Fantana din Piata Revolutiei) as well as the church (Biserica Kretzulescu). The Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei) is one of the places in Bucharest that you should have seen. I recommend a walk from the Lipscani district along Victory Street (Calea Victoriei), one of the most beautiful streets in Bucharest, where you will find other buildings worth seeing.
