Located in Bucharest’s historic Revolution Square, The Romanian Athenaeum is washed in grace from head to toe. And, there is much more to this exquisite building than meets the eye. When it was first built in the 19th century, the Romanian Athenaeum was the base of a cultural society. It later became a beacon for Bucharest’s artistic and scientific flourish. The sense of enlightenment interwoven in its vision reflects through its sublime design and architecture.
Its spacious concert hall has Greco-Roman inspirations in its design. Also, a blend of 19th-century Frech and neoclassical architecture dominates most of the Romanian Athenaeum. Now the home of the George Enescu Philharmonic, the hall reverberates with the quintessential tunes of Romanian classical music on performance nights. However, harboring a rich collection of frescos and mosaics, the Athenaeum has all it takes to keep the artsy type busy at any time. Excellent acoustics is not the only thing Romanian Athenaeum boasts. In its main concert hall, you will learn about history just by marveling at the epic pictures on the walls.
