  • There are cultures that never heal historic wounds and there are those that forget. My generation chose the latter, my parents the first. The horror stories embellished in the ex prison are only compensated by the courageous and peaceful means by which they were fought.

In a short span of time the tour will crush your spirit and restore your hope. It remains one of the darkest documented period of the communist era and a priority into understanding the devastating effects of Eastern European communism.
  • So impressive! If you ever visit Pitesti city, you should also visit Pitesti Prison. There is some history that we should never forget.
