  • Beautiful place to visit, to stay with your friends or family, taking some photos together. Personally, I like to stay on that beautiful grass, I really don't know why people are doing that, but it's quite a nice feel. The location is awesome tho.
  • The Palace is beautiful. There are 4 museums inside all very interesting. It takes about 2 hours to see everything. Everyone is polite and helpful. The price for adults for entry is 40 RON which is reasonable. The art museum has an app you can download where it allows you to scan a QR code to get more info on the paintings. The great hall is amazing. I would recommend this as a must see.
  • Impressive, interior as well as exterior. 4 diverse museums under 1 roof. I liked the & technology ones best. Behind the building is a nice park with varied trees & a fountain.
  • The surroundings are incredible, the palace looks in its original shape, excellent illuminated during the night. The green area behind, the cascade fountains are one of a kind image. I did not visited yes the interior after rehabilitation.
  • The place is a perfect building where you can go with your family to find the beautiful history. This is Iaşi's premier attraction and symbol of the city.
