The Administrative Palace (Romanian: Palatul administrativ) in a building in Satu Mare, Romania. At 97 metres, it is the highest building in Transylvania and the third highest in the country, after Tower Center International and Casa Presei Libere in Bucharest.

History

From the top of the building, almost the entire Satu Mare County is visible, and one can see all the way to Hungary. The history of the building starts in the 1960s, when Satu Mare experienced a period of infrastructure development under the communist regime. The Romanian Communist Party wanted to build a new city center with a building that would be a new landmark for the city. Thus, in 1972, construction of the building began, the main architect being Nicolae Porumbescu of Iaşi, assisted by Ludovic Gyüre of Satu Mare.

The building was completed in 1984; there were over 1,000 workers employed on the project.

The building has three smaller towers and one big main tower. The three small towers represent the three ethnic groups present in Satu Mare County: Romanians, Germans and Hungarians, while the main tower represents the bond between these three ethnic groups.
