Absolutely beautiful building, the exterior renovations are just charming. I wish it were open, but I understand why it is closed. Very close to the mall Palas Iasi, it is across the courtyard.

Built on the site of the former palace of Prince Moruzi, in the perimeter of the Royal Courts (attested from 1434), The Palace of Culture is an emblematic building for Iassy, the former capital of the Principality of Moldavia.

This is an amazing building and I think is the most spectacular from Romania. But they should refurbish the entire building and not only 50%.

The palace currently is closed for public due to renovation but the palace complex is connected to a mall. The back of the palace was fully renovated and have a grand stairs and small garden. Nice place to just sit down and people's watching. It is also a nice picture spot.

They say that this building built in 1920 hosts 365 rooms, one for each day of the year. However, one can never visit all of them at once. Also, part of them are closed for the public. However, the Palace hosts very interesting museums, especially techincal ones, and very beautiful paintings. It is worth visiting!

A beautiful XIX century palace, one of the symbols of Iasi. It's located in the city center, right next to Palas (or rather a part of it). Part of it it's renovated, but the front it still covered in scaffolding. Nonetheless, worth seeing. I would recommend a walk from Unirii Square via Saint Stefan Boulevard with the Palace of Culture... More

This is place is just amazing, really makes you say wow. in the front of the palace there's the statue of Stephen the great but the cool stuff is to take a few minutes walk to the back side of the palace where there's a huge park where you could just sit and be amazed from the view.
