The Palatul Culturii building was built amid 1871-1875, according to the plans of famous architects of Viennese theaters, Helmer and Fellner. It survived 2 fires. After the first, (1880) the original form was kept, but after the second (1920) a screen was built in the front.

Thus, the Renaisance fašade disappeared, the style being kept only on the lateral wings. Behind the screen it is hidden, almost intact, the original fašade. Based on architect Duiliu Marcu's plans, the fašade and the theater's big hall got the present neo-byzantine style. In this hall are held the plays of the Opera and the M. Eminescu National Theater; in the former ball hall function the German and the Hungarian Theaters.
