Impressive old building which we tried to enter today but were turned away and refused access. They had something going on there possibly filming but it's still frustrating when you get turned away. Have no idea what the building looks like in the inside.

Theirs is an outstanding piece is architecture in a very busy road is Bucharest. The horse out the front commands as much respect as does the building. A definite site to see

Very impressive music hall. We applaud the fact that the venerable institution is open for visitors. We'll come back in September for the George Enescu musical festival.

Lot and lots of pigeons. It is guarded. It is beautifully built. It costs 20 Liu to enter per person. Great place to sit on one of its many benches and just enjoy the view. Very calm, frequented by many locals and young lovers alike.
