Sadly we were only able to hear a piano recital in the small hall and were not able to see the main hall which was a shame. Price of tickets though was peanuts compared to similar in France and England.

The concert hall is amazing by his beauty. The solist was the great pianist ELISABETH LEONSKAJA. The orchestra sounded very good, the conductor HORIA ANDREESCU, very good conductor.

Outside is stunning. The Athenaeum concert hall has the best acoustics in the country, and is a Romanian architectural gem- is among the best in Europe. Prices at a concert are low. I would highly recommend visiting this very impressive building. Prices

Extraordinary architecture. When in Bucharest, it's a must to go to a concert at the Romanian Atheneum.

An architectural jewel. One of the most important of high quality cultural centers, in Europe and the world. Here happen the most important events of the International Festival: George Enescu!

A little too long and with too little landmarks. I would not do it again, walking is a better option

Outside it is stunning. I went for a Christmas concert. The main hall is very beautifully painted on the ceiling, other than that it looked kind of shabby, but nice nonetheless.
