Palatul Parlamentului (Palace of Parliament ), București by Alex-397
The second largest administrative building, the forth largest building, and the heaviest building in the world. The Communist Romanian government began building it in 1984, but it was not fully completed until 1997. To build it, residential areas were demolished, with 40,000 people being forced to moved. Forced labour of soldiers was used to build it, with thousands dying in the process.
It is still used by the (now democratic) government today, but it is thought the 70% of the building still remains unused.
