The Palace of the Parliament, located in the heart of Bucharest, is a must-visit destination for any traveler to the Romanian capital. As the biggest building in Europe, the Palace is an impressive feat of architecture and engineering, and its sheer size and grandeur are awe-inspiring.
Located at the end of the long and wide Unirii Boulevard, the Palace of the Parliament is hard to capture in a single photo, even with a wide-angle lens. It’s truly a sight to behold, and visitors can spend hours exploring the various halls, chambers, and galleries that make up this massive structure.
Unfortunately, the weather conditions during our stay in Bucharest haven’t been the best for photography. When we were there during the day we had pure blue sky and it was raining when we were hoping for a sunset. And on another day, when there actually was a nice sunrise, we lost our way and ended up on the wrong boulevard. But at least we have a good reason to go back to Bucharest one day.
