The Palace of the Association of Veterinarians was built between the two world wars, more precisely, between 1929 and 1932. Constantin Iotzu was in charge with designing the building, and the result is an exquisite Art Deco structure with prominent classic touches, enriching the architectural patrimony in the vicinity of the splendid Cişmigiu Park. He was commissioned by the Association of Veterinarians to build the structure, the veterinarians undertaking to donate 5% of their income in order to fund the project.

The Palace of the Association of Veterinarians has been the bone of contention between the said association and the Ministry of Justice of Romania for decades. Indeed, since the coming of the communists on the political scene of the country, the palace served as headquarters for the Ministry of Justice until today and, despite the fact the rightful owner, namely, the association, has repeatedly claimed the establishment, the palace is still the property of the ministry.
