This is a lovely French-style building, which is not accessible to the public for a visit. Furthermore, this time around, the building looked rather dirty from the outside with its walls covered with black dirt and stains. They definitely should do a better work in preserving it. Still, it's really easy on the eye.

A landmark building of the Calea Victoriei. Unfortunately, there is no way to visit the glass dome, as the bank hosted in the building does not allow it.

The CEC Palace structure well situated at Victory Street near the Old Town. The CEC Bank and Museum were operating and we just took a few snapshots from outside due to the shortage of time on our side but the historical building was really beautiful and representative to this city.

The building is very beautiful and is located in Victoria Street, in front of National Museum of History. The construction, which has existed for over a century and has kept its architectural charm and freshness of the times when it was built is an emblematic building of Bucharest.

Architecture at its finest. A huge awe inspiring building that's hard to miss! I believe it is currently a bank so you can only view from the outside but it is still worthy of a look to see the scale of the place

One of the last remaining beautiful buildings in Bucharest! I went to a restaurant across and stared at it for a few minutes!
