After 8 year of restoration and renewal work, Palace of Culture Iasi is almost finished and will reopen for public in April.

After 8 years of restoration and renewal work, Palace of Culture Iasi is reopened for public since April 2016.

Palace of Culture Iasi, the symbol of the Iasi (one of the biggest city in Romania) is listed in the National Register of Historic Monuments.

Starting from April the palace will host art exhibitions. In parallel, until June, experts will house four museums inside the building that will subsequently be open to the public.

The palace started his restoration on August 11, 2013. In 8 years the Palace changed a lot it’s appearance and it’s prettier than ever. It is an impressive edifice, a complex museum, an architectural masterpiece and one of the most important accomplishments of the Gothic style in Romania.

This iconic building was built for the first time in the period 1906 – 1925, on the place of the former Royal Palace. It is not built on top of ancient foundations as people may think. In 1955, the building changed its purpose into a cultural destination, becoming the host of important cultural institutions in Iasi. The Palace was initially projected to have 365 rooms, one for each day of the year, but the standing construction has only 298 rooms.

The Palace went through some serious restoration processes.
