This is one of the most pleasant surprises in Bucharest. We arrived while the symphony was practicing for a performance, the man who escorted us allowed us to sit and watch what was a private performance. The theater is simply beautiful inside and in the foyer.

Beautiful building and grounds, well maintained easy to access. I love granite cobble stones. Just a stroll from the Hilton. No concerts on Sunday. Pity!

This is a very impressive building, wonderfully preserved. The location is easy to find and well worth the effort to get there. One of the best photo locations in Bucharest in my opinion. Plenty of varied concerts take place and once inside -wow!

Good architecture and nice sound experience. You must listen to a classic concert there. The prices are more than cheap, nearly free. Its story is also amazing: "uno bani pentru Ateneul Roman"
