The Palace of Culture is one of the highlights of the city. It looks astonishing from outside and surprises on the inside too.

Located on the corner of Piata Trandafirilor and George Enescu street you cannot miss it. The shiny roof with different coloured tiles as well as the other decorations on the facade make it special. Built between 1911 and 1913 it was influenced by the Hungarian and the Viennese Secession.

When you enter the building you are greeted by a beautiful ceiling. A lady approached us straight away ushering us to the hidden ticket booth. Entrance fee to various exhibits was RON 10 and the photo permit RON 5 which was very reasonable.

We visited the famous mirror hall, the art gallery and some other exhibits. Since some kids were having a rehearsal we just followed the music and the singing and had a glance a the big concert hall which looked like an opera.

In the mirror hall you may buy postcards and some souvenirs. The souvenir vending point in the entrance hall was closed when we visited. Part of the building was also under renovation.

For more pictures, please check out the travelogue.
