This place is very beautiful and important to see. Also the garden outside is a very nice place to stay a bit and relax.

This house first intrigued me by the quirky modern art sculptures in the garden. The house is classically attractive from the outside, but the upstairs interior made me think I could have lived here. However, there is no showing of bathrooms, except for a curtained...More

Fans of (Romanian) history will find a lot of interest in the Union Museum, mostly centered around the figure of the first ruler of unified Romania, 1859 to 1867 and of his wife. There are a lot of interesting artifacts, and a lot can be...More

The location displayed by Tripadvisor is totally wrong. The Union Museum is situated on Lăpușneanu street. The building's architecture is very interesting - inside you can feel the richness and outside you can admire some statues at the top of the walls. I think the...More

The profile photo of this location on TripAdvisor is wrong (showing the Palace of Culture) but the actual building is well worth a visit. There are links to the Royal family of Romania and interesting photos relating to the history of the city of Iași....More

Palace of Culture remodeling is complete, and it's gorgeous. Stop in the museum. Buy tickets straight ahead in the hall upon entering. Currently, there is a gold, silver, and jewelry exhibition of pieces dating back 2,000 or so years. Also, exhibition of Iasi's early history....More

The palace is a jewelry and is one of the monuments from the "must visit" list if you are in Iasi. A lot of tourists see the palace from Palas Mall, but is not the best choice.
