A short while afterwards, on the same left side of the street we meet George Enescu Museum, hosted by a great and monumental building, Cantacuzino Palace (see my special tip for this building). Across the street from it there is the former Italian Legation, nowadays hosting the Art History Institute; the building was designed by architects Grigore Cerchez and Alexandre Clavel, a fine sample of the Eclectic style that was prevailing during the end of the 19th century, with Neoclassical decoration. Soon afterwards we enter Victoria Square in which there are also a few places to mention. To the left, between Ion Mihalache Avenue and Kiseleff Road there is Grigore Antipa Natural History Museum (as we enter from Victoria Avenue, we turn left, cross the tram lines, turn right and cross Titulescu Avenue on top of the passage, then cross once again the tram lines to the right and reach the Antipa). Farther up the Kiseleff there is the Romanian Peasant Museum and across the street from it there is the Geology Museum. See my special posts for them. After crossing Kiseleff Road and Aviatorilor Avenue, we can cast a look at the Romanian Government building (1937-1952, originally meant for the Foreign Affairs Ministry).
