The Palace Hall (Sala Palatului) is a modern events venue located in the centre of Bucharest, very close to the former Royal Palace, now the Romanian National Art Museum. Due to the high standard facilities, the venue has become one of the city’s main cultural institutions, as it hosts a wide range of events: from international conferences to exhibitions and concerts, from receptions to cocktail parties and round tables. Its nine halls can accommodate thousands of people and are equipped with different technical systems and equipments used for sound amplification and simultaneous translation, but also lighting devices, cinema projection systems and closed-circuit TV.
The Great Hall alone can seat 4060 people and is built in the shape of an amphitheater. Known especially for the concerts held here, on the Great Hall’s stage have climbed important world famous musicians and artists such as Placido Domingo, José Carreras, Luciano Pavarotti, Sabrina, Uriah Heep, Scorpions or Lord of the Dance, as well as orchestras from all over the world, mainly during the George Enescu International Festival.
The Lutheran Hall is the most important exhibition space inside the Palace Hall complex. For the same reason are recommended also the elegant Foyer and the Columns Hall (which is also used as space for organizing receptions and cocktails). The Official Lounge is intended for receiving the official delegations arriving at the Palace Hall for congresses, conferences, specialized exhibitions and cultural events.
