Why locals love it

Romania's leading art museum was founded in 1948 to house the former Royal Collection, which included Romanian and European art dating from the 15th to the 20th century. Located in the neoclassical former Royal Palace, set amid a wealth of historic buildings the museum currently exhibits over 100,000 works divided into two major sections.

Why you should visit it

Its National Gallery features the works of major Romanian artists, including Grigorescu, Aman and Andreescu. There is also a roomful of early Brancusi sculpture. The European Gallery, comprising some 15 rooms, displays little-known art gems from the likes of El Greco, Monet, Rembrandt, Renoir, Breughels (father and son) Cezanne and Rubens.

Special tip

If you only have time to visit one gallery, make it the Romanian one. It is the most complete collection of Romanian works of art in the country.
