Me and my friend went to listen to a classical concert in the Atheneul Roman. I recommend everybody to do this! The interior is beautiful and with classic music it is simply complete! It was worth every penny. I went there two days before and bought the tickets, simple as that. If there is no concert you should enter and... More

Just an amazing building with so much history and importance for Bucharest citizens! I really enjoyed the guided tour and I'm looking forward to assist at the Opera concerts next month! I strongly recommend the visit!

Alas, I was unable to attend a concert either by the George Enescu Philharmonic or anyone playing at the George Enescu Music Festival. But I was able to wander around inside the Athenaeum on a late afternoon, and saw George himself--his bust is prominently displayed in the grand foyer. Beautiful building, and well worth a look even if you cannot... More

This is a spectacular building which looks like it has been recently renovated. The grounds are large and we enjoyed watching a couple having their wedding photos taken in the grounds.

We saw a very enjoyable concert by a string orchestra from Moldava here - the soloist was amazing! Cost $12 US equivalent. My most highly recommended experience in Bucharest.

If you manage to get tickets this is one attraction that you should not miss while in Bucharest. The concert hall is intimate and you feel like you can almost touch the performers.

A beautiful building. Hosts lots of shows. Most of them are affordable. Sometimes you can even get a ticket at the entrance at a great price, but be attentive to not overpay.

We were fortunate enough to take the 15-minute 10 Lei "guided" tour inside this beautiful hall, some 6 months after visiting it for the first time and finding out it was closed shut. While the tour "guide" was a rather senile man (with no actual knowledge in English), he led us through the entrance of the hall for a couple... More
