34/40.- Bucharest, Romanian Commercial Bank


This is the central headquarters of the Romanian Commercial Bank, the country's largest bank. The marvelous building is one of the few still remaining and in a good shape (remember the Russian church, it's nearby!)

The dark statue by the sculptor Carrier Belleuse on the right portrays a 16th century Romanian king called Michael the Brave, one of the last to undertake crusades against the Ottoman Empire with the pope's blessing. Also nearby are 3 other statues of important figures of Romania's 19th century, these being right across the street from the University.
