This is a beautiful building in Bucharest located near Old Town. It's on Calea Victoriei and directly across the street from the Museum of Romanian History. It was meant to be used as an exhibit space but somehow became and remained a bank.

Very impressive palace, with a unique central hall. Unfortunatelly it is not a public place anymore. You may negotiate with the doorman to have a very short visit in the main lobby, which is the best part of the building.
