The Romanian Athenaeum, one of Bucharest landmarks, is a beautiful place to visit both for the outside, front park but mostly for the inside. Simply gorgeous! I do recommend attending a cultural event for an amazing part of your memories...

Fabulous architecture, straight from Bucharest's and Romania's "finest hour" period of late 19th century. Amazing concert hall, dome shaped for great acoustics and adorned with a fresco depicting major milestones in Romanian history. Weekly concerts by the country's most acclaimed orchestra. Worth at least a tour, if not a concert too.

Another Concert Hall in the heart of Bucharest. It was originally build for art & science (1865), however, it was converted into a concert hall and was open in 1888

This building is impressive from outside but you really must go inside to experience it's real value. We booked tickets to an opera on the internet and it was worth it just to get inside. The concert hall itself is small and intimate and has beautiful wall art depicting the history of Romania.The marble staircases in the foyer are beautiful.
