Located inside the former Royal Palace in Bucharest, Romania’s National Museum of Art still houses the Royal Collection but has been added to since its opening in 1948 and now contains works by some of Romania’s most celebrated modern artistic sons and daughters, as well as a collection of historically valuable objects, and items from across Europe and the rest of the world.

The specifically Romanian sections include a whole range of pieces dating back as far as the 14th century, including medieval religious icons, ornate silverware, tapestries, books full of illuminated manuscripts and other decorative artefacts.

The modern art department has sculpture and paintings on display by world-renowned artists such as Petrascu, Brancusi, Grigorescu, putting a peculiarly Romanian spin on some of the most iconic art movements of the 19th and 20th centuries.
