Built between 1886 and 1888, the Romanian Athenaeum is one of Bucharest’s preeminent cultural venues. Classical concerts are held in its 800-seat auditorium, which is renowned for its excellent acoustics, though the concert hall is as much worth a visit for its elegant architecture and interiors as it is for its musical offerings.

"We chose to walk to/from our meeting point (about 30 minutes each way) from our hotel, adding an hour to the overall tour, but Bucharest is an easy city for walking. Our guide, Marius, was a delight -- knowledgable and pleasant, and kept us fully engaged for the 3-1/2 hours we were together. The Old City has lots of history and things to see, and my wife especially appreciated his willingness to talk about the people (sometimes patiently reviewing details he had already shared) so she could keep things straight. (I like to learn about architecture and events, she likes to learn about the people involved.) Marius was very adaptable in matching the pace of the tour to our interests and walking speed, spending more time where had more questions. All in all, we came away with a great appreciation for a city that was new to us, as well as for Marius, who took very good care of us."..."
