  • There are a lot of paintings, clothes, ornaments and other things of christian theme. Definitely give it a visit if you're into this kind of things. Multiple different schools are represented on different floors so you can feel the difference. Among the other things, Spanish school space is very hot. Literally. Not sure if paintings are feeling better in a climate similar to a home one :)
  • The Romanian Gallery of Modern Art is worth visiting. You can see there a full range of Romanian famous painters that contributed at a global level. It is a pity that there was no souvenir shop and there is poor marketing of this museum.
