The Palace of the Romanian Youth was built in the third decade of the 20th century, more precisely, between 1924 and 1927, but it was put to use only 8 years later, in 1935. Ever since its opening, it served as headquarters of the back then called Society of the Romanian Youth, founded in the late 19th century as a platform for the launching of the young rising talents in the field of the performing arts (and not only).

What is notable about this establishment, as compared with all the other palaces in Bucharest, is it was designed by a female architect, namely, Maria Virginia Andreescu Haret, wife of Spiru Haret, said to be the first female architect in the world. The construction works proper were supervised by Raul Negru and Valer Paler. The building was laid out on four levels accommodating sundry structures pertaining to the institution, including a museum, a library and a print shop.
