    This is a building you can’t fail to notice when going around in the centre of Bucharest. Built by the Romanian architect Dimitrie Maimaroiu in 1912, it has always hosted the Cercul Militar National (Club of the National Army), with a library and lecture rooms, since its purpose has always been educational and cultural as well as social.
    Most of the building remains strictly reserved to army officers, but the restaurant and the terrace are open to the public.

    Circe Militar - Interior

    The Circe Militar has an excellent cuisine at reasonable prices. The decoration is superb and out of this age. It looks forbidding but enter by the door on the left upt the steps.

    There is entertainment in the evening, so do not sit too close to the stage, and stay away from the area reserved for generals.

    Bad picture.... :(

    The impressive French Neo Classical building was built in 1912 by by arch. Dimitrie Maimarolu.
    It was erected on the site of the formar Sarindar Monastery.
    The spot of the building, in the heart of Bucharests most glorious area gives it a central point for tourists.
    The picture didn't turned out as I hoped it will, I hope that in my next visit I will do a better one....

    Built in the year 1912, after the blueprints of the romanian architects D.Maimarolu, V.Stefanescu and the french architect E.Doneaud, the building has impressive interior saloons, featuring neoclasic french style.


    During the times inside were held reunions of high-class society of that time, art galeries, sculpture and books.
