Hi everyone! I`d like to introduce you a wonderful place from Romania worth visiting!
The House of The People from Bucharest is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the greatest civil structure on Earth, and the second building after the Pentagon. Its total surface is of 330.000 sq m.
The chief-architect of the Palace was a woman, Anca Petrescu.
The materials used include: a million cubic meters of marble, 5.500 t of cement, 7.000 t of steel, 20.000 t of sand, 200.000 cubic meters of glass. A tower of glass was added somewhere around 2004, to house the National Contemporary Art Museum. There were also added a restaurant, swimming pool, sauna, underway parking spaces.
