Probably the most well known landmark in Iasi, it usually hosts exhibitions and it will offer you a nice option especially on a rainy day. Large shopping area right next to it in case you get bored.

If someone visits Iasi, one have to go to visit Palace of Culture, situated in the heart of the city and offering valuable information about the history of the city. It is exactly near Palas Mall, another city spot light.

This huge building dating from the early 20th century has been undergoing renovation for around 8 years. Although part of it is under scaffolding its style is not diminished.

Palace of culture is right next to the Palas mall, still it is under renovation, and the tour inside cost around 170 lei, which is very expensive for only a tour inside, I didn't feel the need to go inside, i just relaxed outside in a coffee shop and enjoyed the view :)

Under renovation when we got there. A lovely building, full of history. It is in the middle of a newly redesigned civic centre area, that includes a mall, lots of trendy places to eat or have dessert, even a Starbucks (the only one in the area).
