Cultural Palace - Târgu Mureș

The emblematic building of the city, which was called the "Ferencz Jozsef Cultural House", is the place that hosts various cultural events in the city, known today as the Palace of Culture. The data on its construction can be studied by anyone in the National Archive, and here you can consult its design documents. The idea of building such a building came from the innovator, Dr. Bernady Gyorgy, who started construction works with 150 people. During the works, the construction projects have been modified several times in order to serve more purposes. The builders did not agree with the greatness of the building because it was about to be a more imposing building, and so the Administrative Palace would have lost its grandiosity. Finally, the Palace opens its doors in 1913. At the opening ceremony, Dr. Bernady Gyorgy emphasized that his intention was for this building to be a cultural center where every cultural field could be found. The palace is decorated in the 19th century style. From the architectural point of view it is modern and elegant, because of this it became the symbolic building and defines the identity of Târgu Mureş. The atmosphere of the building can spell us when we cross the threshold of the Eclectic Palace, and all the more so as we spend enough time to admire the history that unfolds before our eyes. Here is the present with the past, in an elegant ambiance filled with stories.

Built between 1911 and 1913 at the initiative of the visionary mayor Bernády György, the Palace of Culture is considered by many specialists to be one of the most beautiful achievements of the Secession style in Transylvania. The building was meant to host the music school, the town’s library, a theatre and an art gallery. The mayor insisted that the building be constructed by the same architect couple, Komor Marcell and Jakab Dezső, who had also built the imposing building of the Town Hall, a few years before. The palace is decorated on the outside with bas reliefs, frescoes, mosaics and valuable stained glass windows, specific  to the Secession style.
