Starting from an old idea, the building of the Palace of Parliament was built under Nicolae Ceauşescu during a period with high economic hardship. The dictator’s tendency was, on the one hand, to focus all the main bodies of the state in one building and, on the other hand, Ceauşescu wanted a safe place to live under a seismic risk, that would hold up to even a nuclear attack.

From an architectural point of view, the Parliament Palace is one of the most controversial buildings in Romania: Anca Petrescu identified it with the Buckingham Palace in London and the Versailles Palace in France, and the architects of the time with the „little Phenian”, with an eclectic style, loaded with contradictory elements2.

The building, in Anca Petrescu’s vision, is divided into 3 main categories: the first category – area of the main halls, galleries and cabinets; the second category – office area; the third category - belvedere, with three rooms on each floor.

The building has a surface of 365.000 sqm and holds the 1st position in the Guinness World Records for the largest administrative building (for civil use), and the 3rd place worldwide from the volume point of view of; it is the heaviest and most expensive building in the world.
