Romanian Athenaeum

Recommended
The jewel of "Little Paris", the Romanian Athenaeum was originally dedicated to literature but now houses the national philharmonic orchestra. In the neo-Classical style, it is topped by an imposing dome. Beneath the peristyle, five medallions bear the effigies of Romania's greatest kings and princes, while leading names from the world of arts and letters feature in the dome. Inside, note the hall and the wall paintings in the great room.
