Street in front of the palace has many fountains. Another bus shot…..

The Union Square (Piata Unirii) is where the downtown starts. Two of Bucharest subway lines intersect here and the square is the site of one of the city’s department stores, Unirea. Unfortunatelly this place was also Ceausescu’s playground for experimentation, as the square was caught in his plan for "urbanization" and creation of the ugly soviet style Civic Center. To make way for his Civic Center Ceausescu ordered the demolition of all the buildings located in and around Unirii Square.
