This palace is not actualy a tipical palace. This is an municipal buliding, with public destination but was built almost 100 years ago as a palace. Outside this building is absolutlly amasing, but inside is in reconstruction, but even this, you can see some interesting things.

Is a beautiful palace with a garden connected to a state of the art shopping mall right in the center of Iasi. The palace itself is under renovation right now but is soon to be open. If you travel by car you can park there and vistit the center and after have the lunch or a coffee at the mall.

I have been to Iași Twice in the last year and a half and both times, the palace had been closed. It is very disappointing and not clearly communicated on various websites. Well the building is receiving so much needed renovations, the museums remain closed. The exterior of the building is stunning and a beautiful sight to see, however we... More

I saw the building in the spring of last year. Unfortunately at the time it was closed for works. I only had the chance to see it from the out side, but it is very impressive, and it is nice to see we take care of our monuments.

Situated at the end of the historical street Stefan cel Mare Boulevard, The Palace of Culture represents a tourist attraction that should be visited or at least seen and admired, considering that at present it is under renovation, by any tourist that comes to Iasi. The imposing Palace built in the neo-Gothic style, hosts behind its ornamented walls treasures of... More

The exterior is beautiful as are the grounds. This is a must see in Iasi. Unfortunately, the reportedly gorgeous interior is still under renovation. Besides the fountains and restaurants the the Palas Mall surrounding the Palace, there are also original wooden plumbing displays and explanations of the old palace. Really interesting!
