CEC Palace, Bucharest

4.3
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. Plan your CEC Palace visit and explore what else you can see and do in Bucharest using our Bucharest tour planner.
