Although is not one the biggest concert hall I have ever been, the interior is certainly unique! They always have concerts going so walk-in and get a ticket. The inside is a must!

Built 130 years ago, it is a splendid monument of architectural art which hosted vibrant, significant, cultural events of national and international value, being a symbolic edifice of the Romanian spirituality. The 2017 edition of the "George Enescu International Festival" will take place here, between 2 and 24 September.

I've been at the Romanian Atheneum around 3 weeks ago for a concert. In fact, this is probably the most famous concet hall from Romania, it has an interesting history which is related to the modern history of the country and hosts regularly concerts, mostly of classical music.

It's a privilege to attend a concert at the Romanian Athenaeum; if you like classical music, it's a hall where you can enjoy a wonderful interpretation and near perfect acoustics

One of the finest and loveliest concert halls I've ever been to. Impeccable acoustics, a wonderful fresco portraiting Romanian history and a dazzling entrance hall all in marble. Impossible to ignore!

Beautiful opera house. We visited during the day but I think it would be lovely to see a concert there.

This is one of the monuments of Bucharest. I have been here to concerts, the acoustic is very good. If you are coming to Bucharest for the first time you must visit this building.
