C E C Bank Palace - Review
This is the headquarters of the Romanian National Savings Bank. It might not function that way for much longer as the building has been sold off, for reasons stating that it is no longer fit to serve as a modern bank. However no new headquarters have been found. As such, most of the elegantly beautiful building is not open to visitors except for the CEC Museum in the main hall. The Museum briefly documents the bank's historical transactions, products, and other financial artifacts. The most striking feature of the bank is its roof: A large impressive glass and metal dome, as well as four smaller domes on the side.

C E C Bank Palace, Bucharest Reviews
The CEC Palace (Romanian: Palatul CEC) in Bucharest , Romania, built in 1900 and situated on Calea Victoriei opposite the National Museum of Romanian History
A wonderful building, left to damage unfortunately. Also, unfortunately, it’s not open for touristic visits. Tips & tricks: its very nice lighted, at night is a different romantic anazing view! It has a big plus: an app, for free, was created, for Android & IOS (it’s family shared too). ‘CEC Bank 150 de ani’, story starts in 1864 & it’s an interactive app, with a quizz & even a diploma (.jpg)! Create an username& a password & have a internet connection / wifi from one of the restaurants/caffes nearby & Good luck! Enjoy!
Beautiful icon building located in the heart of Bucharest downtown, facing Victories Avenue, looking even better on night time thanks to external very inspired light system. A must see item for anyone walking from Elisabeta Boulevard towards United Nations Square
CEC remained an organisation loyal to the new communist party (PSD)
Some neat historical buildings, bustling old town with lots of places to eat, drink, and buy antiques.
