This is the life...?
      The administrative palace built between 1906 and 1907 following the design of architects Komor Marcel and Jakab Dezso.  It was the first building out of a series meant to change the appearance of the new city center, at the beginning of the 20th century. Carried out in Secession style, enriched with folklore ornaments, the palace is remarkable for its 60m high spire, built originally as a watch tower of the town, placed asymmetrically and covered- like the rest of the building- with colorful Majolica. This material is present in the external flower decorations, too. The impressive entrance hall- in the style of the Knights’ Hall at the  Castle of Hunedoara – and the Council Hall too, had been decorated with huge stained glass windows. In 1962 the Palace become the headquarters of the County organization of the Communist Party and since 1992 it has been the headquarters of the county administration.
