Housed in the splendid Cantacuzino Palace, the French baroque style building, set with Art Nouveau elements is perhaps Bucharest's most beautiful building. It was built between 1899-1902 by Gheorghe Cantacuzino - former mayor of Bucharest and one of the wealthiest people in Romania. After he died, he left the palace as inheritance to his son and wife Maria. Following the premature death of his son, Maria subsequently married violinist George Enescu, who was to become Romania's greatest composer.
