IT was built in the heart of Bucharest 130 years ago. IT is a symbolic edifice for the Romanian culture.
Opened in 1888, the ornate, domed, circular building is the city’s main concert hall and home of the “George Enescu” Philharmonic and of the George Enescu annual international music festival.
The ceiling of the concert hall is decorated with anthropomorphic and animal motifs inspired by Romanian folk tales. The 75 m long Fresco painted on the circular wall of the concert hall illustrates 25 of the most significant events in the Romanian history.
