Very nice concert hall, good acoustic. Recommended. Not very expensive, but depends on the event certainly.

I've been there a few times for various classical music concerts and it was always a pleasure. The acoustics are excellent as it was built for music concerts. The George Enescu music festival is a delight there.

The place looks very nice from outside, it also has a small garden just outside the main entrance. For 10 lei per person you can enter and see the big hall and the concert room with looks very nice but not much else to see...More

The building is stunning from the outside and inside, you can take many picture on the outside as it has a very beautiful style. The reception hall is overwhelming and the concert hall is amazing too.

This is a must see sight in Bucharest. The reception hall wows you and then you are overwhelmed with the concert hall. We saw this on a very enjoyable food and culture walking tour when we were in Bucharest.

This was the biggest wow moment of our time in Romania. The building is stunning from the outside but the inside is breathtakingly gorgeous. Entrance L10. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

This'll was built in a time of progress amd represents a strong symbol, as it was also supported from public subscriptions. The paintings are beautiful and the building majestic.

It’s a nice place to visit after dinner when the concerts and music festivals are back. We paid Lei 10 to get in and see the concert hall which was fine but nothing special if you have been to other part of Europe.

120 years old beauty hosts philharmonic concerts and it is city's main concert hall. Style is neoclassical, with more romantic touches. In front of the building there is a small park and a statue of Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu.

Just go round the side to the ticket office. You can possibly do it online too, but we found it easier to do it in person.
