  Sutu Palace - Bucharest Museum
by Romanian_Bat

The palace was built by Costache Sutu in Neogothic style, following the deigns done by Conrad Schwink and Johann Veit. The successor, Grigore Sutu, granted the palace with its fame, as he hosted there glamorous receptions and festivities. In 1932 the building was rented to Crissoveloni Bank for its offices, and in 1942 it was sold to the CEC Bank. After being restored, it was turned into Bucharest History Museum in 1959. The museum gathers coins, archaeological items, lithographs, engravings, old pieces of clothes, books a.o. Even if you are not keen on museums, the building itself is well worth a visit. Every now and then there is an exhibition or a small fair on (for instance, in the 2007 fall they hosted an interesting antiques and numismatic fair in the small garden in front of the palace).

Address: On Bancescu Avenue, just off University Square.
