“Spend 1 leu on the Athenaeum!” was the slogan used for the construction of what would become the masterpiece of Romanian cultural architecture. The magnificent interior part of the cupola and its 25 images depicting Romanian history make the Romanian Athenaeum a must see for anyone new in the city. In addition, as the name suggests, the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra regularly performs there. Tickets can be booked by phone or purchased directly from the small office on the left-hand-side corner of the main entrance.
