Photographer's Note

The Palace of Culture-Palatul Culturii, next to the Prefecture, is one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings, and is considered the most important building in Targu Mures. It was built between 1910-1914, again, by the architects Marcel Komor and Dezs Jakab, being the last building they made together before the First World War and is considered their masterpiece. Large amounts of brick, reinforced concrete, granite, glazed ceramics, mosaics, wrought iron make up a spectacular building.

The Palace of Culture is interesting both for its exterior and interior architectural style. The best potters, glassmakers, painters and cabinetmakers of the time were in charge of creating the abundant and diverse decoration of the building, with multiple sources of inspiration in the style that was developing at that time in Vienna and Budapest, with a multitude of commemorative statues of life culture of the city.
