Bucharest is full of impressive buildings and CEC is one of them. It is located in the old town, close to many visiting spots.

This building has a long history and its architecture is very interesting. Being placed near the historical center, you can not miss it during your walks.

An impressive facade for any building let alone for a bank!! The domed entrance with Corinthian columns is a highlight

I thought it was an excellent use of an old building. Then people told me that this had been built as a bank and has remained that way since it was built. Amazing building indeed.

This building is beautiful. Definitely worth to have a look and take a couple of pictures. It’s near many of the main attractions and easy to spot, so you won’t waste much time.
