Exactly located in the historic city center this building is a beautiful architectural style, better if you see it at night when it is lit up, really spectacular. Not much else to see apart from the beautiful facade.

i would have liked an inside tour. You visit only the main hall, for free. Beautifully lit by night.

Possibly the most beautiful building in the city. The inside is as stunning as the outside, ask to be shown around - sometimes it is possible

Is one of the places you don't want to miss if visit Bucharest!! The architecture have a "Paris perfume" and if you visit it in the morning is simply amaizing due to the sun which cover the entire construction. Highly recommended for holiday "photoshooting" :) is located few steps away from the best coffee place in Bucharest - Origo.

This building just leaves me breathless every time! is like an old jewelery that reveals it's beauty over and over again! On Victoria Street, you can see it from the Old Center like a discreet and mysterious royalty. Just across the History Museum! Worth a visit!

I think it is one of the most beautiful palaces in old Bucharest (for sure in Top 20 for me). It was built in 1900 in eclectic style for the state owned CEC Bank, first public credit institution ever to be founded in Romania. You cannot park in front of it, but you can find a spot nearby.

Located on Victoriei Bd, near the old city centre, it is an impressive landmark - for it's size and ecclectic style; old building facade contrasts the glass and metal dome roof. Construction started during king Carol I, so this is truly a monument.

It is situated on Vitoriei Street. You cannot go inside but the outside of the building is very impressive. A must for photography lovers. It is across the road from the Old Town where you can grab a bite to eat or have a few drinks.

even if the structure and the front of the building is quite old, this place is great exactly because of that.
