CEC Palace, topped by a glass and metal central dome, houses the headquarters of the national savings bank. A French architect built the eclectic palace in 1900. Its grand entrance, featuring two pairs of Corinthian columns and a richly decorated gable with a clock beneath a wide arch, resembles the facade of the Petit Palais in Paris. Notice the coats of arms in the four corners of the facade beneath the four small Renaissance domes. The bank sold the building to the city, but it still rents the palace as its headquarters. There are plans to turn it into a museum. To visit CEC Palace on your holiday in Bucharest, and find out what else Bucharest has to offer, use our Bucharest itinerary builder.

  • Former headquarters of a Bank, this art nouveau style building with its eclectic architecture, is undoubtedly a gem among the "palazzacci" in Soviet style. Beautiful the pediment with clock and glass dome. With sunset and evening lighting, this Palace captures a lot of charm. Access not allowed.
