Inaugurated on 30 December 1963, The Carol Park Mausoleum was built in honour of revolutionary socialist militants. During the communist regime the mausoleum was referred to as the “Monument of the Heroes for the Freedom of the People and of the Motherland, for Socialism”.
Nowadays it is a reminder of the past – and it cannot be visited inside.
In front of it lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, inaugurated in 1923 in memory of Romanian soldiers fallen in World War I.
