During Worl War I the palace was bombed, and this is when the palace began being used as a place to bury Romanian nobility. It was hidden by German Communists, and almost all the furniture inside was stolen, and disappeared.
In 1957 the palace was transferred to governmental ownership, and today it is a museum. The palace is surrounded by a wall, and around are nice gardens. The architecture of the structures is impressive, and the art gallery located here is equally as impressive.
