Sights of the Romanian Revolution

The revolution in Bucharest took place in three distinct phases, at three primary locations. On the morning of December 21, 1989, demonstrators brought in to cheer the Ceausescu regime rebelled in front of live television cameras during a rally in Piata Revolutiei (then Piata Republicii). After being dispersed, the crowd moved on to Piata Universitatii, where they stayed until dawn of December 22, before regrouping later that day back in Piata Revolutiei, as well as at the headquarters of Romanian television.
