I don't know if tourists can visit the Atheneum - I have entered inside since I bought myself tickets for a show. The acoustic is incredible and the building is really impressive, both on the inside and outside. The park upfront is full of pigeons and I could see lots of brides coming to make photos there on their wedding day.

“Lovely building with a beautiful auditorium”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We had three full days in Bucharest and went to concerts here on two of the evenings. The building itself is stunning. The auditorium is on a very human, almost intimate scale, as well as being notable for its design and decoration. The best way of getting to see the interior is by going to a concert. The ticket prices are very modest. They vary depending on what is on, but we paid about £7 each for very good seats at a chamber concert (you could get tickets at about £5 as well) and went to a symphonic concert for about £12 each. If you face the front of the building, the ticket office is through a door on the left hand side. If you want to reserve tickets, you can do so on their web site - although it is in Romanian it is easy to do ..... choose your date, bring up the seating plan, choose your seats and put in your name/email/phone number (write down your seat numbers) and press "Reservi". It disappears, and you do not get an email! However, you go to the ticket office and they will have your seats reserved - you pay for them when you get there. It worked! You can also just go and buy tickets. We had two really good evenings entertainment for far less than we would have paid at home. Absolutely brilliant. The frontage of the building is very impressive as well.

“Must listen to it”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Buy your tickets in advance otherwise you will miss a fantastic concert there. Listen to a great classic concert in an epic atmosphere.
We loved our presence over there and definetely recommend it to anyone who is paying a visit to Bucharest.

“The highlight of our time In Bucharest”

The concert was sold out but we managed to find a person with two tickets for friends who did not show up. The concert hall is amazing and we enjoyed the concert
