“Symbol of the city”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Palace of Culture is one of the most important buildings in the town, I would dare to say the most important, it is the symbol of the city of Targu Mures. History, culture, art, everything is meant to satisfy the view and the soul of the visitors. Don't hesitate to visit the most interesting and nice part of the palace - The Mirrors Hall and, if you have time, you may enjoy a concert in the Concert Hall with it's famous organ.

“One of the most beautiful buildings I've ever seen.”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you are a fan of Art Nouveau you must see this building, it has been painstakingly restored. If you are very fortunate try to attend a concert. Honestly I felt like I was walking through a Viennese masterpiece that had spent the last 100 years in a deep freeze and had just been revealed.

“100 year old piece of history”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Here's a nice video made for the Palace of Culture's 100th birthday. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nztddgXXt2U
When in Tg. Mures, you definitely want to see this monumental building. It's also hard to miss, since it is right in the city center. You can find a tourist information office at its ground floor.
My 4 year old daughter loves the mirror room, she can't stop running around, so it's also fine if you visit with kids.

“Exceptional !!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

It is a place to see, really nice!!!
The entrance fee is 10 RON.
Only negative: if you want to take photos, it is additional 5 RON charge. I feel mocked when I have to pay such fees.
