This tour takes about an hour and half, 1,5 km walk. Only Romanian workers and materials were used. Guides have a great knowledge. Opulence of the Parliament incredible, good example of eclectic style of communist period.

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
Do you know if they except credit card for tour or do you have to pay cash
