Primaverii Palace Bucharest

Primaverii (Spring) Palace is the former residence of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and can now be visited on a guided tour.

The palace is located in one of the richest and most exclusive districts of Bucharest, in the north of the city and close to the Herastrau park and lake.

Built in the 1960’s, the 80 rooms Spring Palace (to use the English translation of its name) served as a home for the Ceausescu family for almost two decades. While the building, which has its own cinema and swimming pool, is elegant from the outside, the interior is decorated in a ghastly style, showcasing the taste of Ceausescu’s wife, Elena. The decor is perhaps best described as neoclassical kitsch, complete with solid gold toilet roll holders.

The residence, which was always the private house of the Ceausescu family, is a good opportunity to reveal the true face of Communism, of those who were speaking in the name of the poor while enjoying an extravagant life, full of luxuries and without any worries.
