Amazing coherent architecture, inside and out. This is not to be missed. We were unlucky to be there when it was being renovated on the outside, but the beauty of the building still shone though.

Definitely you will not miss it if you are in Iasi. Is totally renovated area and the center of the town. Many shops, restaurants and amusement. Also, almost every cultural event is placed here or in front of Palas. Have a walk around at sunset, and enjoy.....

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.
