“Unofficial (?) but cool tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We went there without being able to find out the opening hours or prices. There were some men and we paid for tickets (5 lei for students), we got 2 old, reused tickets, and a man took us on the tour (me and my boyfriend). I'm not sure if/which foreign languages he was speaking. He gave us an interesting and enough informative tour of the building, finishing with the description of all the scenes of the fresco in the concert room (the painting illustrates the most important moments of the history of Romania from 200 years ago till the second world war). He also insisted to take us a photo on the main stairs. It's worth the visit! Just pass by and see if it's open!

“symphony in the front room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

This is my favourite concert hall anywhere in the world. Apart from being an architectural treasure, there isn't a bad seat anywhere. And it is so intimate, it's like having an orchestra in your front room. And a very good orchestra, at that. Just unmissable.
