  • WOW. The palace rocks. Its renovation has been finished and it looks amazing. At the back of the palace, the gardens and the shopping mall are huge. I loved it at summer, when you can have a walk in the gardens. Got really impressed after returning in the city after seven years. It's clearly new and modern. This doesn't look like Romania. If you are a foreigner, you MUST visit this place.
  • If you come in Romania, and visit Iasi, please try to visit this palace of culture. There is about all the history of Moldova, and who love tehnic evolution. Choice Iași.
  • Amazing palace, newly redone with the original architecture, right at the heart of the city. Come at the right time and you'll hear a wonderful song filling up the air.
  • After almost a decade of restoration, the Palace or Culture is back to its former glory. The Palace houses several museums it costs about 10 euro to visit them all and about 3 to visit only one. Architecturally the building stands out with its neogothic style which is present on the inside as well as the outside.
  • Beautiful and well organised. Defenetly worth a visit
