Palace of the Parliament (9/11)

The largest and most expensive civil administration building in the world covering 330,000 square metres, the Palace of the Parliament has thrust itself at the very centre of Romanian history since its construction in 1986. Built by the communist dictator of the country Nicolae Ceausescu and designed to be his official residence, the palace now exists as one of the central workplaces for the present Romanian government, though roughly 70% of the space inside the building remains largely empty and inactive.
