Few cities have an entire building dedicated to art, music, and all things cultural. With its venerable Culture Palace, Targu Mures is one of them. Dovetailing sophistication and curiosity, the edifice harbors everything quintessentially valuable for the local society. It features the graceful beauty of Art Nouveau in three stories and countless bricks. Now resting on its laurels as a historic monument, the palace is always hosting admirers from around the world. It is, by far, one of the most popular attractions in the city.
Within the palace is the Mures Country Library and the art galleries of the Mures County Museum. The museum proudly boasts thousands of cultural assets, ranging from ethnic pottery to dazzling antiques. Its ethnographic and archeological value is indispensable. But, what you will remember is the feeling of human presence in the displays. If you are lucky, you may even come across an inspiring exhibition. Since 1950, the palace has also opened its doors for the orchestra. It gives way to convivial nights reverberating with uplifting tunes.
Apart from the cultural extravaganza, the palace captivates visitors with its sublime architecture. Portraits of literary heroes embellish the balustrades. Several bronze embossments pay tribute to the most famous artists of the country around the building. You will come to appreciate the ageless artistic tradition once you explore it on your own.
