The Kretzulescu Palace (also known as Crețulescu Palace) is a palace built in 1902. The building was designed by the Romanian architect Petre Antonescu. It originally functioned as the new Crețulescu family residence. The palace is located in the west part of the city center in Bucharest, next to the Cișmigiu Gardens.
At the request of Elena Crețulescu, the palace was built on the foundations of an older palace, which dates from the reign of Constantin Brâncoveanu. The new palace was built in the French Renaissance style and had baroque influences. Since Elena Crețulescu loved nature, she built next to the palace a flower garden and a greenhouse.
The palace was a Crețulescu family property until 1927, when Town Hall bought it from its owners. Since then, the palace has functioned as headquarter of various cultural and administrative institutions. Since 1972, the building is the headquarter of UNESCO-CEPES (European Center for Higher Education UNESCO).
