Place of elevated music in Bucharest. Located in heart of town, near Royal Palace and National University Library and Athenee Palace hotel. The statud of Eminescu (the great Romanian poetry) is just in front of building. Surrounding area is a quiet place. Partial destroyed during WW2 by the bombs but recovered after war. Great fresca inside! Even you are going... More

Opened in 1888, it is the city's main concert hall and home of the philharmonic. Being on a bus tour, we weren't able to get inside, but I loved the architecture of this stately building and hope to return someday and enjoy a concert.

Amazingly beautiful building. Worth to pay a visit, as it is probably the most beautiful one in Bucharest.

The inside of this place is very beautiful. The ground floor foyer is very nice and the artwork inside the hall is great - need somebody to explain all the detail.

If you want to get a chance to see the inside of the Atheneum, I recommend visiting Bucharest in late August (when the classical music festival, George Enescu, is on- most expensive ticket is 160 RON) or late May and on this occasion, see a concert. My boyfriend and I went to visit it during the summer. You have to... More

Nice and interesting building, part of Romanian art and history. It holds classical music concerts several times/week, which are very cheap (or free I don't remember). There is an open market just in front of it, with typical and very cheap romanian food and some stuff to buy, very low prices....

An extraordinary building, iconic for Bucharest, like a piece of jewelry! This is something worth visiting indeed, if you have the chance buy tickets and go there to a concert.

This is a very impressive monument. The entrance is one of the most impressive that i saw. The hall it self is very nice but not very big like others in Europe.
