  • Easily one of the most beautiful buildings in Bucharest. We got the chance to go inside on a Tuesday evening at 9.30pm and had the place to ourselves. 10 Lei per had is so worth it. You can freely wander around and go into the concert hall. No supervision, just beautiful neoclassical architecture in pristine condition.
  • Stunning interior. Auditorium is amazing. If you are into architecture it should be on you list. However, keep in mind it's rather small in size, so visit itself won't take much of your time, even if you decide to stare at painted walls of auditorium in search of every detail.
