The ”Theodor Costescu” Culture Palace is a symbol of Drobeta Turnu Severin. It is a national monument and is also recognized as a UNESCO world heritage monument. The Palace was designed by the architect Grigore Cerchez and the massive building was created to have 7 large halls: three halls for the library, a theater and a restaurant in the northern wing. The other three halls were designed in the western wing, where it was supposed to be the C. I. Istrati museum, the festivities hall and another hall.

Its building started in 1912, at the initiative of Theodor Costescu, who was then the head-master of the Trajan High-School from Drobeta. In 1916, the construction was stopped due to Romania`s participation to the Ist world war, but it was continued from 1918. Thus, the Culture Palace was open for the public in 1924.
