This is one of the most beautiful buildings in the whole of Bucharest. It's definitely got to be on everyone's must-see list. It really makes one realise why Bucharest was once known as the Paris of the East or Little Paris.

CEC Palace is in my opinion the mother of all historical buildings: huge, imposing, nice architecture and it's still in use. If you come across Calea Victoriei just make sure you won't miss a visit!

old historical building, on the Calea Victoriei street, in the center of the city. Kind of difficult to reach, but you can admire it if you go on foot on the Calea Victoriei.

The building is beautiful to behold, it's across from Old Town and from a museum. It's a quick stop to look at the building. It's actually a bank now.

The architecture of the building is quite beautiful, but it's just a bank now, so not really worthy of much more than a quick "oooh" and "ahhh" before moving on.
