We were amazed how quiet it was and little signage to show you location of such historic events. Loved seeing and sensing the history of the place, especially the events of December 1989.

Amazing to see. the 2nd biggest man made building on the planet. Designed so you can drive a tank right through it. ?

There is little to indicate the significance unless you have read up on things or are on a tour. Some parts are quite dirty with abandoned alcohol containers and a strong stench of urine. Could be so much more for tourists with minimal additional investment.

On one side the royal palace, where the first Romanian King resided, on the other the communist headquarters, of which, the balcony where Ceauşescu gave his last speech, (as told by our tour guide). A must visit to appreciate Bucharest/Romanian history.

This is one of the largest square in the town. As the city is not so well administrated, you can see garbage everywhere.

It was good seeing where one of the key historical events of the late 20th Century took place. It is only a 5 minute walk from Universitate metro.

I remember when Ceauseseu was deposed and then killed. Once a darling reformer, next a despot and increasingly a cruel leader, he was overthrown and murdered right down the street. It's unusual to visit places like this in a city and not on the battle...More

We well remember the TV news coverage of the December 1989 events here, leading to the overthrow of the Dictator who had ruled for 24 years. It was very moving to visit it in person. During his last speech from the balcony, with his wife...More

It is always interesting to stand in a spot where history was made - in this instance, the Piata Revolutei, opposite the former Communist Party HQ from whose balcony dictator Nicolai Ceausescu made his last speech in December1989 before being ousted and killed. Architecturally more...More

Revolution Square is a historical site that must be visited when you're in Bucharest. Several guided tours will take you here and give you in-depth details of the events. I highly recommend visiting Revolution Square.

If you go to the metro at the university it's just down the main road which takes you to the park (perpendicular from the train line) it's on the right hand side.
