I really loved the porticoes on this building! We only visited the medieval section so perhaps I'm being stingy with stars. There was some interesting stuff to see, but the iconostases from monasteries 'unfortunately demolished' told their own story of Ceausescu's philistinism and megalomania. It...More

You need at least two hours, and ideally three, to appreciate this huge collection of Romanian and Eurpean paintings and sculpture. There are elevators, but not marked with signs -- you must inquire. Photography is allowed. No coffee shop! Free drinking water available.
