Beautiful by day and even prettier by night. Doesn't seem to have tours anymore so I'm not sure what is inside. But it's a fabulous place to look at and study. Said to have been built on a former monestery. The dome is particularly interesting

Bucharest is full of impressive buildings and CEC is one of them. It is located in the old town, close to many visiting spots.

This building has a long history and its architecture is very interesting. Being placed near the historical center, you can not miss it during your walks.

Impressive building which is amazing that it was built as a bank. You can go inside apparently but it was closed when we visited...

An impressive facade for any building let alone for a bank!! The domed entrance with Corinthian columns is a highlight
