In 1878, a large-hearted Romanian returned from Athens, where he has been a diplomatic agent, wanted to build a "home of arts" with a concert hall, exhibition halls, library and a picture gallery in Bucharest, The Athenaeum. The name of this Romanian was Constantin Exarcu. They decided to build the Athenaeum with French architect Albert Galleron who built also the National Bank of Romania. The expenses over-fulfilled the money they have had, so they initiated a public collection with the motto: "Give one Leu for the Athenaeum". So, in 1888 the Romanian Athenaeum was finished and will be for a long time the landmark of Bucharest like the Eiffel Tower for Paris. At his death, Constantin Exarcu left its fortune to the Romanian Athenaeum. Here in Exarcu's Athenaeum Hubermann, Kubelik, Enescu and Voicu, Sauer, Paderewski and Ursuleasa played violin and piano, Cortez, Nicolesco and Carusso sang. Celibidache conducted, and in the exhibition halls, generations by generations, Romanian painters and sculptors exhibited their works.
The tiny but remarkable Stavropoleos Church was built in 1724, designed by a Wallachian prince renowned for his religious architectural accomplishments, and is one of the oldest churches in Bucharest. Built using a combination of Romanian and Byzantine architecture it has a beautiful fašade and a delicately-carved columned entrance. Surrounded by a peaceful garden, it is an architectural jewel, with beautiful frescoes and religious icons.
