Taking centerstage in Bucharest’s Old Town, Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei) is located along the central boulevard of Victoriei Street and has long been at the forefront of the city’s historic events. Originally named Palace Square (Piața Palatului), Revolution Square earned its current moniker after the Romanian Revolution in 1989, and remains one of the city’s principal landmarks and navigational hubs.

For first-time visitors, the grand square is undeniably impressive, framed by ornate buildings and crowned by the towering Memorial of Rebirth – a 25-meter-high marble pillar erected in the center of the square, in memory of the victims of the Revolution. Other important monuments on the square include the neoclassical Royal Palace, now home to the National Museum of Art; the Romanian Atheneum, a domed concert hall dating back to the 19th century; and the former headquarters of the Romanian Communist Party, where Nicolae Ceausescu famously addressed the crowds for the final time, before fleeing by helicopter. Also around Revolution Square are the University library, the sprawling Palace of Parliament and statues of Iuliu Maniu and Carol I of Romania.

We know Bucharest is not by far as tempting as magical Transylvania or as adventurous as the wild Carpathians, but Romania’s capital has its own distinctive charm. If you’re not in a hurry to judge a book by its cover, you’ll find a great destination with plenty to do and see . From centuries-old churches to monumental landmarks before the First World War, from modernist constructions to communist architecture, Bucharest has maybe more contrasts than any other European capital. The city’s architecture is the best witness of its history and you’ll easily find yourself visiting monuments built during the royal time and the World Record Palace of the Parliament in the same day while taking photos of Art Nouveau facades along the way.
