1. Cultural Palace, no. 1 George Enescu Square

The construction of the building was launched in 1901 by Kölcsey Cultural Society, which had begun the procedures to raise a building what would house the loca museum, the city library and a concert hall. For the construction of it, here was an international competition.

Eventually the decision met was in favour of the services of the architect Ludovic Szántay of Arad. The inauguration took place on October 25, 1913. The magnificent lobby made out of marble brought from Moneasa leads to the concert hall, beautifully lit by the series of side stained glass windows.

The painting on the dome arch represents the solar system and the Halley comet, which at the time of the construction was orbiting close to Earth, encouraging apocalyptic visions.
