Casa Melik was built in the mid 1750's, which is really fascinating. It is beautiful inside out - wooden carpets and ceilings, big windows, furniture from 16th, 17th century and of course, pieces of art - paintings, aquarelles....Worth visiting.

A very nice villa placed in a calm garden, full of unique paintings and sketches of one of the most important Romanian artists - T. Pallady. The mansion is historic and worth seeing.

Very small but charming. Peaceful. I like the works of art there but most of all the house itself-it is like returning back in time

This is a beautiful house, it was told this is the oldest remaning house in the city. The museum itself is interesting, unfortunately too few paintings from Pallady, who was one of the exceptional Romanian painter.
