Ceausescu: from the Taj Mahal to the House of the People

A short survey of dictator Ceausescu’s evolution from a human-face communist strongman to a North Korea inspired tirant reflected in his architectural “imagination”, which culminated with the monstrous House of the People in Bucharest, nowadays the second largest building in the world.


I endeavour through this series of periodic articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.


If you plan acquiring or selling a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advise you in sourcing and transacting the property, specialist research, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.
