This is one of the biggest ruins left by the Communist Regime in the capital of Romania and it’s also one of the biggest buildings in the city. It is also remarkable for its lack of use .

People call it “Casa Radio” (The Radio House) but it was meant to house a museum dedicated to the Communist Party on a total surface of 35.000 square meters.

The building was left unfinished after the `89 Revolution. Its balcony was used by the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu on August 23rd 1989 to watch the festivities marking Romania’s National Day. It was the last Communist parade in Romania.

The building was partly destroyed a few years ago as the construction for a hotel, offices and commercial center began. The project was halted by the 2008 financial crisis.
