Places to visit in Bucharest



Palace of the Parliament (Palatul Parlamentului)

 

Built by Communist Party leader, Nicolae Ceausescu, the colossal Parliament Palace (forerly known as the People's Palace) is the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon. It took 20,000 workers and 700 architects to build. The palace boasts 12 stories, 1,100 rooms, a 328-ft-long lobby and four underground levels, including an enormous nuclear bunker. When construction started in 1984, the dictator intended it to be the headquarters of his government. Today, it houses Romania's Parliament and serves as an international conference centre. Built and furnished exclusively with Romanian materials, the building reflects the work of the country's best artisans.
A guided tour takes visitors through a small section of dazzling rooms, huge halls and quarters used by the Senate (when not in session). The interior is a luxurious display of crystal chandeliers, mosaics, oak paneling, marble, gold leaf, stained-glass windows and floors covered in rich carpets.

Address: Izvor Street, 050711 Bucharest, Romania





House of the Free Press (Casa Presei Libere)

 

An impressive edifice standing in the northern part of the city, since 1956, Casa Scanteii (as it is still universally known) was designed by architect Horia Maicu. There is no doubt that the building is a smaller replica of the Lomonosov University in Moskow - Russia (inaugurated in 1953).Between 1956 and 1989, the House of the Free Press housed almost all of Romania's capital printing presses and headquarters of print media companies.Today, it carries out much the same function but the southern wing is now the home of the Bucharest Stock Exchange.
It was designed by the architect Horia Maicu, in the pure (albeit comparatively small-scale) style of Soviet Socialist realism, resembling the main building of the Moscow State University, and was intended to house all of Bucharest’s printing presses, the newsrooms and their staff.

Address: 1, Piaţa Presei Libere, Bucharest, Romania






The Romanian Athenaeum (Ateneul Roman)

 

The work of French architect Albert Galleron, who also designed the National Bank of Romania, the Athenaeum was completed in 1888, financed almost entirely with money donated by the general public. One of the preeminent public fundraising campaigns ever in Romania, the "Give a penny for the Athenaeum" campaign saved the project after the original patrons ran out of funds. With its high dome and Doric columns, the Athenaeum resembles an ancient temple.
The lobby has a beautifully painted ceiling decorated in gold leaf, while curved balconies cascade in ringlets off a spiral staircase.A ring of pink marble columns is linked by flowing arches where elaborate brass lanterns hang like gems from a necklace. Inside the concert hall, voluptuous frescoes cover the ceiling and walls. Renowned worldwide for its outstanding acoustics, it is Bucharest's most prestigious concert hall and home of the Romanian George Enescu Philharmonic.

Address: 1-3 Franklin Street, 010287, Bucharest, Romania






The Arch of Triumph (Arcul de Triumf)

 

The arch of Triumph is situated at the second circus of the Kiseleff boulevard, at its intersection with Marshal Prezan and Marshal Averescu Boulevards, near one of the south entries of the Herastrau Park. The first monument, a wooden one, was erected on the same spot in 1922. The actual arch was built in 1935 in Deva granite, by Architect Petre Antonescu, who is also the father of the Bucharest City Hall. It is conceived in classical style, following the model of the great Arch of Triumph in Paris. An interior staircase allows visitors to climb to the top for a panoramic view of the city. The sculptures decorating the structure were created by leading Romanian artists, including Ion Jalea, Constantin Its shape is that of a parallelipiped, with a 25 x 11.5 m basis and a height of 27 m. Its span is 11 m high and 9.5 m wide and has an arch of a circle at its upper part. The two feet of the monument have interior staircases which lead to the terrace of the monument.

Address:Piata Arcul de Triumf, Kiseleff Road, Bucharest, Romania






National Village Museum (Muzeul Satului)

 

The National Village Museum is on the shores of lake Herăstrău and exhibits vernacular architecture from all over Romania. Comprising some 300 dwellings – churches, workshops, windmills and so on – there’s much ground to cover, so keep a keen eye out for the ingenious dug-out (or “pit”) homes from Oltenia and the iconic wooden churches from Maramureş in northern Romania. The Village Museum was established in 1936 and it contains over 300 wooden houses, windmills, churches etc. from all over the country. If you don't plan to visit Romania's rural areas - and even if you do - you shouldn't miss this museum which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. Many of the buildings are originals which were brought here in pieces and reassembled. The oldest houses date as far back as the 17C.

Address: 28-30 Kiseleff Blvd., 011347, Bucharest, Romania







National Art Museum (Muzeul National de Arta al Romaniei)

 

The imposing building which used to be the Royal Palace is located in the Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei), in the northwestern corner. It was first built around 1815 by prince Dinicu Golescu and it underwent changes over several decades. The building was remodeled in 1882-1885 after plans by the French architect Paul Gottereau only to be rebuilt in 1930-1938 after being damaged in a fire in 1926. Starting with 1948 the palace houses the National Art Museum and it displays an extensive collection of Romanian and European art dating from the 15th to the 20th century. The building was damaged during the events of December 1989 and was closed for several years for repairs. Address: Calea Victoriei 49-53.
