There are only 2 or 3 famous Romanian palaces, but few people know that Romania has a legacy of over 1300 castles, palaces, mansions and fortresses built by our ancestors. You can visit some of them, but unfortunately some are just ruins, also very exciting to explore.
Among these 1300 pieces of history, I only chose 10 of each to recommend you for a visit. Palaces are many in Romania but the most beautiful ones are:
1. Parliament palace
Built in Bucharest by Ceausescu, Parliament palace is the second largest building in the world. You can visit it if you book our Bucharest classic tour.Parliament palace in Bucharest built by Ceausescu
