More than 3,000 children of various ages of Bucharest and from the country, alongside their attendants have toured on Sunday the Chamber of Deputies within the seventh edition of the ‘Open Doors for Children’ event.
The children could visit the Plenary Hall of the Chamber of Deputies, and also a series of reputed halls of the Parliament Palace: ‘I.C. Bratianu’, ‘Take Ionescu’, ‘Union’, ‘Al. I. Cuza’, ‘Nicolae Iorga’, ‘Nicolae Balcescu’, ‘Spiru Haret’ and ‘I. G. Duca’.
Most of the children did not miss the occasion to take a selfie with their camera or cell phone, the most preferred places being at the presidium of the Plenary Hall or in the Speaker’s Office.
Some of the kids were curious to know whether there ‘is the president’s office’ and ‘where is (president – author’s note) Iohannis.’
A little boy with a “legislative initiative” said he wished “a law of soccer” and longer school holidays.
Among the visitor were a few Chinese citizens, at work in Romania, who said they wished to take advantage of the event and show their children the Parliament Palace.
Since its first edition, in 2007, the event “Open Doors for Children” by which the Chamber of Deputies is celebrating the Children’s Day has brought almost 20,000 visitor, according to data released by the Chamber’s Press Office.
