The Romanian Atheneum is a must for anybody who visits the city. Either foreigner, or romanian visiting the city for the first time. Gorgeous arhitecture, extraordinary details and a really stunning interior!

We didn't go inside, don't even know if you can, but it's a great photo opportunity. The sign says no dogs but, still yet, some woman was walking her dogs and be careful where you step, they don't clean up after them.

You need to check their website for the calendar show. Some shows you cannot buy online and you have to go there in person. Call them to know when the tickets for the show you are interested are available.
