Bucharest’s #PalatulParlamentului ( #ParliamentPalace#PalaceOfTheParliament ) is the seat of the Romanian Parliament, which actually was in the news this past week, as the legislative body dismissed the sitting prime minister and her government in a vote of no confidence! The colossal building contains a whopping 1,100 rooms, and was designed by a team of approximately 700 architects, and constructed over a period of 13 years (1984–97). It was built as a monument for a totalitarian kitsch style of architecture, in Totalitarian and modernist Neoclassical architectural forms and styles, with socialist realism in mind. The Palace was ordered by Nicolae Ceaușescu (1918–1989), the dictator of Communist Romania and the second of two longtime autocrats in power in the country since World War II, during a period in which the personality cult of political worship and adoration was in full force for him and his family. It holds several distinctions: it’s the heaviest building in the world, weighing just over... 4 billion kilograms (9 billion pounds, or 4.5 million tons); it’s the world's largest civilian building with an administrative function (nearly 4 million square feet of floor area); and it’s the world's most expensive administrative building (valued at €3 billion) #BucharestMarathon@runinbucharest#runinbucharest#Bucharest#București#Romania #🇷🇴 #marathoncountry36#marathonnumber116#marathon#running#marathonglobetrotters#marathoncountryclub#marathonmaniacs#doubleagent#teamnuun#nuunlove#TeamFluffyStrong
