LIST: 50 Contemporary Art Galleries & Museums You Should Visit in Bucharest [2019]

Taking up where we left off when we indexed the independent Romanian art galleries (recommended by Premiesku in their Bucharest city guide for Stamp the Wax), we invite you to discover the 2019 list of art spaces, galleries and independent museums.

Furthermore, to get a wide view of the alternative local cultural dimensions, be sure to also explore the cultural hubs and rehabilitated heritage buildings published by feeder.ro, while the theatres and cinemas cater to more established demands.
