The Royal Palace

The Royal Palace, on the western side of Piața Revoluției, now contains the excellent National Art Museum, the highlight of which is a marvellous collection of medieval and modern Romanian art, featuring the country’s most revered painter, Grigorescu, and the great modern Romanian sculptor Brâncuşi; there are also impressive works by El Greco, Rembrandt and Brueghel.
