“The best way to understand the Romanian (sub)culture. Romanian kitsch is authentic as it is creative, ridiculous and proud in the same time. Also features a shop, only 10 min away from my flat.”

Concert Hall
“Romanian Athenaeum is a concert hall built at the end of 19th century by the French architect Albert Galleron. It is of the Bucharest’s symbols, the most prestigious concert hall of the capital and one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. This unique historical monument is the headquarters of the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra. The Athenaeum interior is even more impressive than its exterior: four Carrera marble spiral stairs, an arch decorated with medallions depicting various sciences, organ realized at the George Enescu's proposal and the concert hall adorned with amazing frescoes. So if you have more time, take an opportunity to see it also from inside or even better to attend a concert there and enjoy its world-famous acoustics. In 2007 Romanian Athenaeum was included into the European Heritage List for its historical importance to Europe and the EU.”
