The Serb Orthodox Episcopal palace is one of the most beautiful buildings in Timișoara. The building's ground stone was put in 1745, during the time of the Serb bishop from Timișoara, Gheorghe Popovici. Initially, the building was simple, unobtrusive, built in Byzantian style.

It was embellished much later with the rich bas-relief, which can still be admired today. Above the port can be seen the emblem of the Serb Orthodox bishopric from Timișoara. The palace has been and is a real centre of faith and of the Orthodox culture.

Among other important events, here took place the renowned national-religious Sobor-Adunare of the Karlovitz bishopric from 1790. The palace also keeps an impressive museologyst collection of religious art, which was opened to the public in 1967.
