Sutu Palace

Bucuresti, Muntenia

AddressBlvd. I.C.Bratianu, 2,Piata Universitatii

Description

The building was built for the grand seneschal Costache Sutu between years 1833-1834 respecting the plans of two Viennese architects, in Gothic style, with four towers located in pairs on the sides.

Sutu Palace enjoyed maximum brightness in the mid-nineteenth century, between luxury soirees organized by Gregory and wife Irene Sutu. At that time the palace was surrounded by gardens where there were peacocks, pheasants and other rare birds.

Inside the Sutu palace are found monumental solid wood doors, the crystal lamp which illuminates the pleasant and sober room, a grand staircase with two arms, crowned by a huge Murano glass mirror that wrongs the view which, amazed , thinks the hall is much larger.

The first hall of the palace from the floor recomposes the space of a salon specific to the Bucharest of the mid-nineteenth century, as it appears in documents. The furniture is upholstered in purple fabric with large white dots and appears smaller than that of today. The walls were sober brown and blue decorations and are painted in brick colour.

In the next room are exposed archaeological evidences attesting the age of human settlements within Bucharest. In many districts of Bucharest were found objects from the Neolithic, the Bronze Age and later in the Geto-Dacian.

The reception salon from the ground floor is the place where temporary exhibitions of painting or photography are held and sometimes concerts of chamber music, where public access is free.
