  • A real masterpiece of culture, arts, ethnography and technology, all together in an extremely beautiful building, with very kind personnel to guide you 
  • You can't miss the great Palace of Culture in Iasi even if you wanted too, but be sure to also visit it as it is full of history and has interesting museum art works.

  • 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
