Mesmerizing

One of the most amazing concert halls in the world! Home of the George Enescu Philharmonic, it has one of the best acoustics and it also qualifies for a architectonic wonder!

First time when I saw this place was from the movie "Charlie Countryman" and decided to visit here. It's got a yard where people rest, take photos. Its design is really amazing if you look closer.

Nice building in the middle of the city. This building is a must in Bucarest. The architecture is just amazing.

Even if you're not a fan of classical music, this is one of the objectives that you should visit in Bucharest.It's one of the most beautiful old buildings in town,with impressive architecture.Besides,the area is full of other interesting landmarks:The National Art Museum,Cretulescu Church and so on.

The building is absolutely stunning and qualify of the sound inside for the classic music concert was fantastic. The entry process was great and we were seated quickly. Unfortunately the prestige of the old times at the symphony are long gone since you cannot even get a glass of water or wine at events because there is no bar in... More

The Romanian Athenaeum is not only a wonderful building, which every tourist should visit, but it is also a cultural place perfectly suited for any person with at least a slight interest in classical music. Me and my boyfriend attended a concert on a Saturday evening and it was divine - George Enescu Youth Philharmonic playing Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms.... More

We stopped inside here for a couple of lei (didn´t have time to see a performance) and it was stunning! We had a brief guided tour in Romanian so it might not be for everyone, but even if you don´t know the language, it´s definitely worth a look to check out this luxurious, unique building.

A concert at the Romanian Athenaeum is something one shouldn't miss when in Bucharest. Sometimes there are foreign artist invited, sometimes there are free concerts, there is always a combination of a good concert and a wonderful and impressive hall with amazing decoration!
