The architecture of this building and its rich history - a host of many famous orchestras, conductors, and artists, makes it rival many like performance halls of Europe.

Pricey to just walk in and look around but worth it - one of the musicians was practicing while we were there so we got a special treat. The accoustics in the building were amazing - would have been awesome to hear a concert there (they didn't have a concert while we were there).

Listened to a rehearsal for 15 minutes which demonstrated the amazing acoustics of this building. Beautiful architecture which is worth a look on its own.

If you visiting Bucharest for business or pleasure, reserve a half a hour to visit Ateneul Roman. For me it is in top 5 things to see in Bucharest.

The Romanian Athenaeum is a must see and we were lucky that it was immediately next to our hotel (Hilton Athinee). The building is beautiful both inside and out - very iconic. it's within walking distance from Revolution square too and other landmarks, and also viewable from the bus tour.

Essentially this is a concert hall, although it is housed inside a magnificent building. We paid 10 LEI each to get in which was a bargain. We could take photos freely. The guide’s English was a bit sketchy but he managed to get across quite a bit. Amazing frescos and marble columns/decoration. A must to visit.

Very great and magnificent arhcitecture. Even we came there at night it is still shining. This place is our last destination from the open tour-guide. If you have a chance to go inside go and see.
