What To Expect

Ceausescu Mansion
The “Ceauşescu Mansion” was for a quarter of a century (1965-1989) the private residence of Nicolae and Elena Ceauşescu and of their children, Nicu, Zoia, and Valentin.

Built in the mid-1960s and known at the time as the “Spring Palace”, the mansion was enlarged between 1970 and 1972. The preferred choice for the design of the Ceauşescu family’s residence was Aron Grimberg-Solari (born 1928). The architecture of the palace is complemented by landscaping conceived by the architect Robert Woll (who was also the main furniture designer for the house) and the landscape engineer Teodosiu.

Museum of Communism
This is the building, now museum, where Nicolae Ceaușescu and his wife were tried and executed. It is now old, dilapidated, and not maintained very well or used except for the area of the trial. Entry cost was 8 ron and there is an addition charge to take photos. The rooms are very small and you can tell by the furniture it was a very poor country in 1989. It appears they do not want to glamorize the event or persons as there were limited photos. There is a room where they checked President Ceausescu and his wife medically before the trial. There is room with the tables and chairs that the trial was in. There are two chairs in a corner where they sat. The other tables were used for the defense, prosecutors and guards. There is a room with the beds where they ate and slept. You can go outside and see the area where they stood them up and used automatic weapons to kill them. There were no trees there at that time as now.
