This is a beautiful building in a city that has many beautiful buildings. Great Greek architecture. We walked from our hotel to see this and it was lovely.

Stunning concert hall. While we had to pay to enter the place, this concert hall speaks for itself. Impressive decorations inside the hall and outside, at the entrance level, are all reminding of the best concert halls in Paris and the like. Recommended.

This is a gorgeous building and we were lucky to have a hotel room overlooking it. We decided to visit inside for a small fee via an entrance on the side street. It is very beautiful and you can wander around the dramatic lobby area...More

I've been in a number of European concert halls. The Athenaeum is one of the most beautiful that I've been in. I had the privilege of enjoying private performances by a violinist and pianist. I highly recommend taking a tour and attending a performance.

I went to several concerts there during the Enescu Music Festival and enjoyed the musical experience. The building is a cultural gem, and I hope the signs of of wear and tear will be attended so Romanians and victors alike can continue to enjoy this...More
