The dark side of the Romanian communism

Museum Memorial Sighetu Marmaţiei (Victims of Communism, Romania)

In Sighetu Marmatiei we discovered two things: Museum of Arrested Thought and placinta (turnovers with potatoes, cabbage or chocolate!).

The prison was closed in 1974 but between 1948 and 1952 180 members of Romania|s academic and government elite were imprisoned there. It’s quite a lot of documentation in every former cell about communist time, life, political repressions, terror and finally the development of freedom. (More information under:

In the courtyard: kind of cave with memorial and bronze sculptures looking into wall.
