Near-mythical concert hall

The Romanian Athenaeum is well-known for the quality of its acoustics. This near-mythical concert hall has hosted all the big names from the world of classical music like Ravel, Strauss, and Enescu. It's located near Franklin Street and has a small park in front where you can admire the facade from the comfort of a bench. It was built by French architect Albert Galleron in 1888 and the entryway features small medallions representing the great figures of Romanian history. The concert hall can seat about 1,000 people, and on the ceiling of the rotunda, you can see frescoes about Romanian history.
