Piaka Constitukiei
Everyone knows the Parliament (a.k.a. the People's House), that gigantic palace in the heart of Bucharest and the large avenues surrounding it, but is that what Bucharest is all about? This tours goes behind the scenes and unveils how the Romanian Capital's central street network was destroyed, how historical areas were cut off from the city life, became isolated and started decaying, all of them sacrificed for a new, dystopian city centre where Ceaușescu would rule supreme.
