The Atheneum of Bucharest

The Atheneum of Bucharest is an iconic landmark in Romania’s vibrant capital city. It stands as a symbol of the city’s rich cultural heritage and enduring human spirit. Built in 1888, the historical building has been witness to many of Bucharest’s most important milestones and continues to be at the center of its social life.

Adorned with beautiful frescoes and detailed relief sculptures, the Atheneum is one of Romania’s most impressive architectural masterpieces. The grand building was designed by French architect Albert Galleron, who had traveled all over Europe before arriving in Bucharest for this special project. He used a combination of styles that were popular in France at the time, resulting in a unique mix of neoclassical elements blended with oriental motifs from around the region.
