Greetings from Iasi, Romania , Argenna.

Hello ~★Alex_G★~ , thank you for your appreciations. About what you asked it`s a long story ! If you have pacience...

The land around the impressive Palace of Culture in Iasi, found built on old princely palace, was built before 1434, Princely Court. Due to numerous fires and attacks, the Princely Court has required repeated restorations. In 1784 a great fire and the flames extended to the Princely Court, destroying it. Alexander Moruzi, income for the second time at the seat of Moldova (1802-1803), give the command to restore them. Construction of the new palace, great, lasted until 1806, when it was inaugurated with great fast. But not long after, in 1827, the new yard is turned into ruins by another fire. It will be restored after 13 years. Devastate by another two fires, the palace was demolished, and the place was built between 1906-1926, an imposing building, which today houses the Palace of Culture valuable art museums. Sorry , it was a long explanation .

Greetings , Argenna.
