[EN]

Construction of the Palace (also known as the People's House) began in 1983, the official inauguration attended by Ceausescu himself took place on the 25th of June 1984.

The building has a developed area of 365,000 square metres (3,930,000 sq ft), making it the world's second-largest administrative building, after The Pentagon, and in terms of volume, with its 2,550,000 cubic metres (90,000,000 cu ft), it is the third most massive, after the Vehicle Assembly Building of the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida and the Temple of the Feathered Serpent in Teotihuacan, Mexico. For comparison, it can be mentioned that the building exceeds by 2% the volume of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and therefore some sources label it as a "pharaonic" construction.

In terms of weight, the Palace of the Parliament is the heaviest building in the world, weighing in at around 4,098,500,000 kilograms (9.0356×109 lb).

The Palace is open for visit being one of the main attractions in Bucharest.

1983 este anul in care incepe constructia Palatului Parlamentului din Bucuresti (cunoscut inainte de revolutie sub numele de Casa Poporului), ceremonia oficiala a asezarii pietrei fundamentale avand loc la data de 25 iunie 1984 in prezenta presedintelui Ceausescu.

Cladirea are o suprafata desfasurata de 330.000 m2, inscriindu-se, dupa World Records Academy, la capitolul "Cladiri Administrative", pe locul 2 in lume dupa cladirea Pentagonului, iar din punct de vedere al volumului, cu cei 2.550.000 m3 ai sai, pe locul 3 in lume, dupa cladirea de asamblare a rachetelor spatiale de la Cape Canaveral din Florida si dupa piramida lui Quetzalcoatl din Mexic. Pentru comparatie se poate mentiona ca aceasta cladire depaseste cu 2% volumul piramidei lui Keops din Egipt, si de aceea unele surse o caracterizeaza ca pe o constructie „faraonica”.

De asemenea este si cea mai "grea" cladire din lume, cantarind peste 4 miliarde de kilograme.

Palatul se poate vizita si reprezinta una dintre principalele atractii turistice ale Bucurestiului.
