Romania Will Finish Ceausescu's Lavish Palace

May 17, 1991| Associated Press

BUCHAREST, Romania — The government has earmarked $10 million to finish a monumental palace begun by Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu before he was overthrown and executed in 1989, officials said Thursday.

The government decided last week to finish the building, second largest in the world after the Pentagon, said Victor Dumitrache, a deputy minister of public works.

Construction stopped abruptly on Dec. 22, 1989, the day Ceausescu was overthrown, with the lavish building about 80% finished.
