The Palace's Hall whose plans were drawn by the architecs Horia Maicu, T. Ricii and I. Serban was inaugurated on the 20th of June 1960. It is used for large cultural events, different conferencies and congresses.

Toward the north, on the left side of Calea Victoriei is placed the Museum of Ceramic and Glass, the Museum of Art Collections, the Romania Academia and the MUseum of Romanian Music (in a building dating from 1898-1900, constructed in the baroque style from the ages of Louis the XVI th).

The Victory's boulevard ends in the Victory's Square which holds the imposing building of the government and the Grigore Antipa Museum of Natural History.

Important buildings, for their current and past destinations, are also found along the chain of boulevards that go parallel with Calea Victoriei. on the I. Bratianu boulevard we find the old Şuţu Palace, built in neo-gothic style (today it holds Bucharest's Museum of Art and History).

After that there is the Coltea Hospital, the first sanitary edifice in Bucharest (1708).

Walking on the N. Balcescu boulevard we can see one side of the University of Bucharest, built in neo-classical style (1857-1869), the Intercontinental Hotel and the National Theatre, the Dalles exposition hall and different flight agrencies.

On the General Magheru Boulevard are placed the Lido and Ambasador hotels, the Scala and Patria movie theatres as well as a large number of stories.

A trace of originality is given to the boulevard by the Italian Church, built in the 1920-1930 by the architect Stoppa in the style of the Roman basilicas.

Walking along the Lascar Catargiu Boulevard, sided by elegant villas, we arrive again in the Vitory's Square.

From here, going north you can admire one of Bucharest's most beautiful neighbourhoods, with quiet streets full of verdure. Here we will find monuments that remind us of the First Wolrd War (The Triumphal Arch, The Aviator's Statue).

The parks and the streets hold most of the foreign embassies. The Triumphal Arch is dedicated to victory of the Romanian army in the 1916 and has been built between 1935 and 1936, after the plans of the architect Petre Antonescu. It has a height of 27 m. Known artists like I. Jalea, C. Medrea, C. Baraschi, C. Petrescu, Mac Constantinescu and the others have contributed to the sculpting of the decorative elements.

Among this group were Constantin Esarcu, VA Ureche and Nicolae Kretulescu. they all wanted to gift th Bucharest with a large hall for the important musical ans artistic events. The funds were raised with the help of the inhabitans, who responded to the call "Give one Leu for the Athenaeum". With its large cupola and its neo-classical facade, the Athenaeum has the aspect of an ionic style temple.

The hall room has 1000 places and is decorated by a large fresco, masterpiece of Costin Petrescu. The fresco presents the most important moments in our history.

Old centre of the city PDF  | Print |  E-mail

The centre of medieval Bucharest, its Royal Court was placed somewhere between Lipscani, Splaiul Independentei, Calea Victoriei streets and the I. Bratianu Boulevard. The place on which the royal palace with all its gardens and outbuildings was placed, is now known as the commercial neighbourhood 'Curtea Veche' (The Old Court). After being used a few centuries, in 1776, the old palace was abandoned and the terrain was sold to merchants. All the foreign tourist's descriptions unanimously agree on the elegance of the gardens and on the luxury inside the palace. In its book, 'Histoire delle moderne rivoluzione della Vallachia' (Ed. N. Iorga, Bucharest, 1914), the Italian Anton-Maria Del Chiaro Fiorentino, the private secretary of Constantin Brancoveanu describes in a detailed manner the luxury inside the palace during ages of this ruling prince.
