A must-see for first time visitors. Of great historical significance, the square is situated near other important squares which one can access by walking around.

Especially when you learn the history of the area. Romania has had a troubled past but is now booming and deservedly so.

Watch Ceaucescu's last speech before coming here. When you have read the history and watched the clips of this dictators last moments, visiting here becomes very real and meaningful. It is quite a small square but history was changed here forever for this wonderful country.

Visit with a tour guide (there are free tours in Bucharest) to get the full story of the buildings on this square.

Though the monument isn't well loved by Romanians, and it is pretty ugly, this is the one place in Europe in 1989 where the communists went down fighting. Unfortunately, the balcony where Ceausescu made his last speech has an AC unit on it now.

Visit here if you have time. If you look closely at the entrance to the Ministry building you will see at the door and at the staircase bullet holes from the time of the revolution.

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.
