Wow! This building is amazing. You only get to actually see about 5% of it but it is beautiful. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English.

This is the 2nd biggest in the world. I took a picture from 250 metres away just for the front part. However,was told that it was under utilised.

Really huge and impressive building with nice architecture. Worth to see walking around the city. Close to the other places of interest as Bulandra theatre, Palace of Deposits and Consignments, Old town.

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
