Palace of Culture

Local name: Palatul Culturii

The Palace of Culture was built in the Art Nouveau style in the years 1911-1913. Its facade is decorated with mosaics and carvings of stone and bronze, as well as colorful frescoes and stained glass. Currently, it houses the headquarters of the National Philharmonic, a library, an art gallery and exhibition space, where thematic exhibitions are regularly changed.

The building houses a large concert hall, measuring 45 m in length, able to seat 700 spectators, and a Small Hall with 200 seats, decorated with floral motifs. It is worth seeing the Hall of Mirrors, which owes its name to monumental, crystal mirrors and 12 colorful stained glass windows that occupy the entire wall overlooking the street. Interestingly, they depict scenes from Hungarian legends.

The palace once housed a city cinema, the first Romanian theater school and the National Theater. It was also the seat of the art and music high school, as well as the Academy of Fine Arts.
