“absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

this building is the testimony of interbellic period, it is an amazing structure that was built in eclectic style which ends with a glass dome and metal. The entrance is crowned by a semicircular pediment supported by a pair of composite style columns.The building will be transformed in an art museum. In my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful buildings in Bucharest

“Impressive, but not allowed in without passport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The building, and neighbouring avenue, is worth seeing as it is so impressive.

Unfortunately, although we had British photo driving licences, the Job's-worth on the entrance wouldn't let us in because we didn't have our "National Identity" passports!

“Architecture piece of art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Architectural structure is amaizing beautyfull. Its worth visiting just for this reason. I am not sure is allowed to take pictures inside maybe just with your cell but not with your professional camera. Actualy there is a bank.
