Camp Bucca. Former Iraqi prison, known as 'Guantanamo Iraq'. Bought by a business group that seeks to give new use to the plant abandoned the war, but there was not much renovation, the rooms are in rows behind bars.
Het Arresthuis. Located in Holland, the prison opened in 1862. Locals knew it as the prison of the sufferers. Permanently closed in 2007 to reopen as a hotel. The structure remains the same, not wanted to forget the history of the building.
Hotel Malmaison. Until 1996 worked as a prison in the UK. His recent prison history shows in the structure and large metal doors that have been preserved. Yes, inside the rooms and no amenities, just for you.

Ceacescu was rough on the city. He tore out the entire center, leaving it a big empty lot. I'm afraid there is not much left. However, the Romanian countryside is beautiful and accessible. Take a bus to Bran, site of Dracula's castle, and hike into the stunningly beautifuly Translyvanian Alps. Take the train to Sinaia, an old Hapsburg mountain resort with a Grand Hotel and very pretty palace. Al...a was inexpensive, lodging and food were of good quality, other an Burcharest (and Alba Ulia), the cities were pretty. Also, take the train to Efrorie Nord on the coast. It has the delightful feel of an old communist workers resort (which I like, no kidding) and beautiful views of the Black Sea. In the 1990s, Romania had not yet become a traffic-jam country (like Slovenia), it may still be nice.
