If you love classical music, then don miss the Romanian Athenaeum (Ateneu) near Hilton hotel in the central Bucharest. Beautiful architecture and the acoustic is just awesome. Ticket price from 25 ron. Concerts starts usually at 7pm.

I was at the Romanian Athenaeum at a classical music concert and I was captured by the somptuos architecture of the place . The concerts held here are truly amazing!!!

Attempted to visit the Romanian Atheneum in one morning and I was told by some tough looking dudes to come back after 13:00. They where practicing for a concert. Returned at 14:00 and they said no, it's not possible; no visiting today, come back next week... Oh well, I was hoping to spend my money in that place!

Placed in the middle of the city, this building is an exponent of Romanian culture. After a successful restoration, it is representative for Balkan architecture. Containing a beautiful concert hall and offering generous foyer for exhibitions of painting, it worth to be visited.

I wanted to see an Opera it hadn't opened for winter as yet. We saw a Russian pianist for the small sum of €9. Not my usual bag, I did enjoy it! The inside of the building was just stunningly beautiful. Worth a visit just to see the inside. The main entrance area is like a Disney reality.

This is a beautiful building from the exterior but it is best to find a concert to go to so you can appreciate the opulent interior and the excellent sound. And gosh the concerts are inexpensive.

This is a wonderful venue with a beautiful gallery and stage. You pay to get in and then have the run of the place mostly. Well worth the time and money.

It is a very beautiful and clean building. The interior is pretty impressive as well as the big hall. It worths to attend a concert. The concert which i attended was a bit boring though.. Only instrumental music and not singing. Half of the audience was sleeping. :)
