Discover IASI (Romania)- Part 1- Places you should visit in Iasi

4 years ago

Forever the traveler and the wanderer, I always found Iasi to be a restful place to stop by(). A day spent in Iasi was for me a discreet and finely nuanced Iasi I felt closer than elsewhere to the ideal place where everyone would like to spend their life.(Gala Galaction Iasii- As they were).
1. The Palace of Culture
One of Iai`s most recognizable and charming buildings is the Neo-Gothic Palace of Culture.
It sits on a promontory above the river terrace and serves as a visual reference point for central Iai.
It was completed in the 1920s by I.D.Berindei as a government administration building, but it is now the home to four museums: The Art Museum,The History Museum,The Ethnographic Museum ,The Polytechnic Museum.

2. The Monastery of the Three Hierarchs
A unique monument of its kind, a proof of the cultural and spiritual life of Moldavia, the Church of the Three Holy Hierarchs is located in the old centre of Iasi, on Stephen the Great Boulevard , formerly known as the Princely Street.
It was completed in the 1630s, and its exterior of patterned stone carving was once layered in gold. The monument is renowned for its embroidery in stone (most of it preserved in its original form) that decorate the outer walls.
It now provides the resting place for the crypts of Alexandru Ioan Cuza, Dimitrie Cantemir and for the members of Vasile Lupus family.

3. The Metropolitan Cathedral
Further up Stephen the Great Boulevard, we can distinguish the Metropolitan Cathedral founded between 1840-1880. The architectural style is inspired by the late trends of the Italian Renaissance, resembling the famous church Trinita del Monte in Roma.
The Metropolitan Cathedral is the greatest Orthodox Church in Romania and is also a national and international pilgrimage place where the remains of Saint Pious Parascheva are placed
