The large city of Iasi has been a cultural and political hub since the 15th century. Everything orbits the Golden Plateau, bookended by the Palace of Culture and Union Square, and packed to the brim with churches and palaces galore. Iasi has significant Jewish history. The first Yiddish-language newspaper was published here, and the 17th-century Great Synagogue is the oldest surviving synagogue in Romania.

Visited all the expositions in the Palace and I must say it is worth it. It is loaded with history and has an incredible architecture. A must see if you end up in Iasi.

This is on me of the most beautiful churches in Romania. The outside facade of carving stones is just amazing. We were there just between the lunch time when the church was closed. So we returned later and it was definitely worth. The interior is also very charming. If you are in Iasi this is just a MUST.

Truly something for everyone here - plenty of shops as well as restaurants, cafes and bars. The children have plenty to do - there are "car" rides inside where they can stroll around in a remote controlled car their size for a cheap price and also a place where older kids can try out video games on ps4 and xbox one.
Also plenty of ice cream stands for the summer and beautiful Gardens to walk through. Romantic for couples, and still peaceful despite the many people.

Great place. One of the most beautiful Botanic Garden visited ever. 65 Ha of trees, roses, chrysanthemums, and much more. You have to visit greenhouses! Take care to the maps inside because they are not very clear!

The oldest national theatre in Romania, Vasile Alexandri Theatre in Iasi has a breathtaking Neoclassic exterior and a richly decorated interior in Rococo and Baroque styles, making it one of the most elegant buildings across the country. In the recent years, due to some changes in the management, the Opera in Iasi (housed in the same building), has come to an unexpected revival, major plays being successfully staged and sold out months before the play. If you have the time, go to see "Les Indes galantes” or Carmina Burana.You won`t regret it.

A stroll in the historical town is a must for every visitor of Iasi. Stretching from Piata Unirii to the Palace of Culture, this quiet area offers a lot to see: renovated old buildings, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the breath-taking Three Hierarchs Monastery, coffee shops, chocolate shops, bookstores, it`s everything for everyone.

This large park at the outskirts of Iasi is a lovely place to go for a stroll or even have a picnic. You find people playing chess or backgammon at the various tables, and there is a monument to a famous Romanian poet, and a massive obelisk with four stone lions at its base.

The monastery stands on a hill dominating the city and can be seen from miles away. However, to visit it you to climb that hill. On the good weather it’s a nice walk. Otherwise, you need a car. Interesting architecture and paintings. The monks are also saling their own wine (a decent one, worth trying).
