“Lovely building”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had a personally guided little tour early in the morning, Very impressive building and would think it would be great to actually see someone playing here. Lots of historical frescoes, ornate ceilings, glasswork, the works. It is ornate, without being overdone. Well worth a look.

“a classical building with good acustics”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I was in a concert and it was my third visit to this place. The acustics is fantastic and the decor is marvolus. the seats are from red valvet and qre quite comfortable, It is a pity it doesnt have a careteria or a bar in which you can buy beverates and refershments.

“Breathtaking, huge and cozy”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Way to go C0rwin (the guy who wrote his impression just before me)! There isn't much more I could add to his description. We felt just the same and we too immediately felt the urge to listen to a concert but there where none. Just the same, we went out smiling.

“A must visit”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

A small but cozy and impressive concert hall, the Romanian Athenaeum is a must even for those that don't love the classical music. The massive paiting from the big concert hall depicts the romanticized history of Romania. Tickets are hard to get sometimes (due to the big number of season ticket holders) but there is also the option of a tour.
