Pictures on the net and descriptions you might read cannot fully capture the immense grandeur of the Nicholi and Elena edifice to their power and megalomania here in Romania. Our guide ALEX was candid, humorous and detailed in our 2 hour sprint through this colossus.

Very interesting place helped by a knowledgable and keen guide. Ask for Marius he made it worth it and you get a little taste of the Romanian people and Michele Jackson's love of someone elses capital.

It's rightly a 'must see'. Pay out for the complete tour, you won't regret it, you'll never see anything like this anywhere else in the world!

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
