North_South thoroughtfare
From the old part of the city two large parallel throughfares go North: the first one is Calea Victoriei, and the second is formed by the chain of boulevards I. Bratianu, Nicolae Balcescu, Lascar Catargiu, along which you will find the most important buildings in Romania's capital. Near Calea Victoriei's crossing of the Dambovita river is situated the old Post's Palace, built in 1900.

Today you will find here Romania's Museum of National History and the Savings' Bank Palace, both built between 1896 and 1900 in the french's school academic style. Calea Victoriei's centre is marked by the Revolution's Square.  A few ministries buildings circle the square. The art Museum (housed by the Royal Palace), the Kretzulescu church, the Central University Library, the Romanian Athenaeum and the 'Athenee Palace' hotel are also in the surroundings of this square.
