(4.5/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Walk through prison cells-turned-exhibit-rooms at Memorial of the Victims of Communism and of the Resistance, and learn about the communist repression and the totalitarian system in Romania from 1945 to 1989. More than 56 cells of the former prison educate visitors about various topics, such as the Cold War, the persecution of students and intellectuals, peasants' uprisings, and workers' strikes. The museum treasures documents, photographs, 5,000 hours of audio and video recordings, as well as much artwork. Do not miss the large sculptural composition "Cortege of the sacrificial victims" in the inner courtyard. The group features 18 figures standing against a prison wall.

  • Words can not describe the essence! To understand you have to go there and see. I fully recommend to go and visit one of the most terrible communist jails in Romania !  more »
  • as soon as you enter the corridor of entry it soon becomes clear that won't be a visit to a Museum, but the environment makes you jump right into terrible atmosphere of the times it represents. It's a step into the past atrocious and hidden to the world that Romania has unfortunately suffered Communist repression. You can't describe the emotion that one feels, should make it known more because everyone should understand what it was like that.
