The inside of this amazing concert hall is incredible and gorgeous. Take a tour even if you can't find a concert time that works for you.

In the heart of Bucharest you will find a masterpiece of architecture and style, built with the sole purpose of hosting the Romanian Philharmonic Theatre. Well worth visiting and if in season, attend one of the concerts.

It has a small concert hall with great acoustics. The quality of the shows is pretty high, but you need to buy tickets in advance if you want to be sure you get... More

The building is an icon for Bucharest build in the 19th century style. And it was shown on some of Romanian paper money. The sound it is great and going to a concert here is an exquisite experience that I would recommend to everyone.

A great place to spend time, attending a classical concert or as a matter of fact any event. Great sounds, elegance and a deep feeling of wellbeing. Full of art and so alive - a must on anyone's list, at least from time to time.
