Iasi Hometown to one of the world’s most beautiful libraries

Romania’s fourth-largest city is a cultural delight. Once nicknamed the ‘city of the hundred churches’, Iasi is indeed bursting with centuries of architectural creations. Yet besides the monasteries, theaters and other historic buildings, this eclectic place has botanical parks, big squares and both communist-era concrete structures and gleaming modern shopping malls.

Top sights in Iasi:

  • Iasi Technical University’s Library
  • The “Tram of Communism” – tourists can now travel through the city like the Romanians did during communism accompanied by specialised guides who will tell you everything about life during the communist era
  • Palace of Culture
  • Moldavian Metropolitan Cathedral
  • Church of the Three Hierarchs
