“Lovely but one of many facinating buildings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

We saw this at the end of a tour around the city and while it is a lovely building it is one of many lovely buildings in the city. Worth the visit but so many others are as well.

“A glimpse of Little Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

This nineteenth century concert hall is a glimpse into the Parisian soul of Paris. The artwork on the inside is stunning and the architecture classic. Classical music concerts take place here every week and the price of tickets is absurdly low, a throwback to another era -- the Communist era when music and the arts were fully subsidised.

It's a "Don't Miss" destination (or sensation).

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

I was not expecting such a beautiful building. Worth a few minutes to look at the outsides and if you can...try to catch a show!

“This landmark is a must-see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

The Roman exterior is so pretty one feels uplifted just watching it. The entrance hall is very special and the staircases defiantly have Rumanian touch to it. The concert hall itself is work of art, but maybe not so original. The fresco covers important events in Rumanian history. There are only 800, much coveted; seats so if you want to go to a concert, book well ahead.
