The ornate, domed, circular building is the city's main concert hall, hosting also the George Enescu annual international music festival. Designed in neoclassical style with some more romantic touches by the french architect Albert Galleron, built on a property that had belonged to the Văcărescu family, it was inaugurated in 1888, although work has continued until 1897.In front of the building there is a small park and a statue of Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu.
