The Romanian pavilion was a modern and sober work of art, but with a Roman and Byzantine influence, the tradition of which is still alive in Romania.

The life-size statue of H.M. King Carol II was placed in the hall of honour decorated with alabaster, aragonite and onyx from the country.

After having visited a real hunting museum and a tourism section in the basement, and then the economic section on the ground floor, you could not fail to take a keen interest in the "Royal Foundations" and, in particular, in the "Student Teams", which was a specifically Romanian creation directed by the eminent sociologist Professor Gusti.

A gallery of works of art occupied the third floor.
