It was built between 1898-1900 for Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino.
Grigore Cantacuzino was thought to be one of Romania’s wealthiest citizens in 1899. As Prime Minister, it was his wish to have the most elegant residence in Bucharest. The building has a French Baroque style from Ludovic XVI epoch.
In 1956, Cantacuzino Palace became "George Enescu" Memorial Museum dedicated to the famous Romanian musician. The museum displays documents and various objects that belonged to the great Romanian composer and violinist George Enescu.
