I usually go there to attend the classical music concerts. The Romanian Athenaeum is one of the most beautiful builings in the country. I highly recommended as worth seeing.

This is a beautiful building in a city that has many beautiful buildings. Great Greek architecture. We walked from our hotel to see this and it was lovely.

Stunning concert hall. While we had to pay to enter the place, this concert hall speaks for itself. Impressive decorations inside the hall and outside, at the entrance level, are all reminding of the best concert halls in Paris and the like. Recommended.
