The Parliament Palace in Bucharest, Romania


The Parliament Palace in Bucharest, Romania

Quite a few of the 136 readers who correctly identified March’s picture didn’t particularly admire the building, the Parliament Palace in Bucharest, Romania. It was built by dictator Nicolai Ceausescu as the “Casa Poporului” and “Victory of Socialism Center” in the 1980s and was unfinished at the time of his death.

“So ugly, and such a tragedy for Romania,” said Mrs. Don Adamson of Altadena, CA. Jean Rudolph of Moscow, ID, labeled it a “monstrosity.”

“Ugly,” opined Robert Brockman of San Antonio, TX, while Katya Davis of Eugene, OR, had a brighter outlook: “It looks better at night when it is lit up.”

Our thanks to all the people who entered. The winner of the drawing was WARREN WILKES of Mesa, AZ.

We also thank Jackie and Phillip Korbholz of Stockton, CA, for submitting the drawing.

The statue "Object," Prague, Czech Republic


“Object” by David Cerny

A horse! A horse! My kingdom for. . .

Eighteen readers correctly identified the location of the strange equestrian statue pictured in our February issue.

The sculpture, “Object” by David Cerny, is suspended in the Lucerne Passage off Wenceslas Square in Prague, Czech Republic. (Readers who had seen the sculpture outside the passage prior to its installation were counted as having right answers.)

The winner of the drawing was BILL LANE of Golden, Colorado. Thanks go to Margo Wilson of Scottsdale, Arizona, for submitting the photo.
