Placed in the modern city centre, the old Palace of Justice, built between 1906-1925, is now a complex of museums. One can enjoy the history, art and culture of North-East Romania in a fresh and refurbished decorum. Good for young and old!

You cannot visit Iasi and not see the Palace of Culture, even if just passing by it.. Just like the Copou Park..

First time I saw the Palace I thought to myself "A castle like this one would fit me so fine if I lived in Medieval centuries" :))) It is remarkable building, huge, spacious ball rooms, high sealing, amasing inlays, and what's more lots of history and art inside and out. The Palace is a constant home of four different museums... More

I have visited today all four exibitions. I was impresed of diversity and chronical arrangement. Explanations are very detailed and in some cases the Android Apps , scaning with bar codes can help much more. New era - new (Hi) tech.
