We booked tickets from home and collected on the day (they are released if not picked up at least an hour before the performance). Three tickets for around £16 for best seats in the house too. The building was originally from 1888 but renovated only recently. It is stunning. Everywhere you look there is a classical detail or creative historical... More

One of the most beautiful buildings in all of Bucharest, we were fortunate to get a private tour of the inside, where we learned lots about the history, architecture, and musicians who performed there.

The Symphony concert in this palace was enjoying. The hall is beautiful. It is full of art, murals, paintings, crystal, velvet. The hall is not huge and the acustic is not the best one, but during concert you have time to enjoy the view.

Beautiful building, my most favourite in Bucharest. Interior may be a bit too decorative but the shape and design is quite nice and exquisite.

Probably the most exquisite building you will ever enter - the auditorium literally a work of art!! If you get the opportunity, attend a rehearsal or concert

The tickets are very inexpensive (around 30 lei for 2 people if I am not mistaken) and the music as well as the Architecture itself are definitely worth it. I am not fond of classical music, yet the performance and the music itself was excellent. It makes it for an excellent and classy date night. You can also buy tickets... More

Imagine listening to all Beethovens' piano concertos in two evenings in such a place... It could not get eny better. Just take a look at the pictures (from the internet).

They say people had a contribution to this building. Now there is no real accepted image of Bucharest without the Royal Concert Hall of Romanian Atheneum. You can very easy imagine that it faces the former royal palace, now the National Art Museum, on its right Athenee Palace Hotel, on its left famous Library. This is the very heart of... More
