  • The roof of the building is covered with colored glazed tiles in the form of fish scales. The Palace of culture was built in the style of the Hungarian Art Nouveau, modern style. Hungarians here so much that many of the inscriptions are duplicated in the Hungarian language. The Palace of culture was built in 1911-1913, respectively Marcellom and Komorom and the Hungarian architects Dezső Jakab, Now here are the State Philharmonic Society, the permanent exhibition of the Museum of history and archeology, library and art gallery. Its walls are decorated with ten great stained glass compositions, each of which is divided into three sections, Oak panels. Six stained-glass windows depict idyllic paintings of peasant life sekeev, and the remaining four-story composition on the subject Transylvanian folk ballads. Very beautifully.

  • This Palace is a near must if you are in the city. In addition, his Museum part (collection Bernaby) has really interesting pieces and not religious paintings (which is almost surprising for the time). I am much more reserved on the contemporary part where it seems to have put the brol and Bazaar to look pretty. Very nice piece of mirrors with audio commentary by french (rare!), we can unfortunately not photograph, even paid the tax picture. But it tells you not to ruin the surprise. Please note that entrance into a building to the right of the Palace.

  • The Palace of culture is already an experience in itself. Very beautiful architecturally and artistically designed. Worth seeing also the collection of paintings.

  • Nice concert venue. Architecture is great, and definitely worth a visit, not only for attending a concert. Unfortunately not exploited at full touristic potential.
  • This culture house in Targu Mures city is a stunning secession styled building,which was built in 1913 by Komor Marcell and Jakab Dezső architects . The famous painter was Körösfői Kriesch Aladár who did an extremely wonderful work as you can see on my pictures. Unfortunately is not allowed to make pictures in the mirror room( only if you pay a fee ),but in the rest of the places you can make pictures. In the ticket price you got guiding too,I know in Hungarian and Romanian languages, I am not sure if they have English guiding ( probably on request ),so you probably has to call them before or write an email, because it worth it. I surely recommend this place.
  • While I was in Targu Mures I had to spend a few hours before my bus home arrived, so I have decided to visit the Palace of Culture. Arriving at around 3:55 p.m. I was surprised to see that the visiting hours were only until 4 p.m. which is a real bummer. However, i was let in after paying for the ticket but didn't receive a receipt, which leads me to believe that the money went to the vendor instead of the actual business. The palace itself is beautiful. A lot of stairs to climb but it is totally worth it. There's a lot to see and learn and if you manage to get there around morning time, you won't be let down by what it has to offer.
  • Good for go for music, theatre, and to see our history. Not good for disability people.
  • Targu Mures flagship building. One of a kind in Romania. I recommend every tourist to visit it.
