Romanian Athenaeum Tours

Romanian Athenaeum
Arguably the most beautiful building in Bucharest, the Romanian Athenaeum is the city’s foremost concert hall and a source of national pride, with an elegant Doric-colonnaded façade topped with a pediment and cupola. It was designed in Neo-classical style by French architect Albert Galleron and opened in 1888 to great acclaim; the great Romanian conductor George Enescu debuted his ‘Romanian Poem’ here in 1898. The lobby of the concert hall is an opulent, almost Art Nouveau triumph of ornamental gilding supported by arched, pink marble columns that lead off to a series of twisting marble staircases leading up to the concert hall. The circular auditorium seats 652 under a fabulous domed ceiling richly ornamented in scarlet and gold and fringed by frescoes by Costin Petrescu depicting important events in Romanian history; it is world-famous for the clarity of it acoustics and is home to the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra, who offer a full program of classical and chamber concerts as well as performing in the celebrated George Enescu Classical Festival, one of the biggest cultural events in eastern Europe.

star-5
Bucharest, Romania - often marketed as the "Little Paris", "the Berlin of the Orient" would do it more justice. It is an intriguing blend of oriental medieval architecture, French-style Belle Époque buildings, Soviet-style utilitarian and monumental buildings, as well as American-flavored glass&steel sky-scrappers.We will make sense of the city together by exploring it from different perspectives. This is not your typical checklist tour: you'll often hear real-life stories, and learn about real characters that shaped the city, and which are often omitted from the official guidebooks. You will also understand why locals sometimes love to hate their city. We will explore both mainstream sites, as well as hidden gems.
