A city break in Iasi.
Because we have become accustomed to doing city breaks only in cities in foreign countries, we lose sight of the fact that we have exactly the same possibility to do this at home. Why not a city break in Iasi?
So what can you do in Iasi in a city break both culturally and religiously or simply as entertainment.
1. The Palace of Culture in Iasi
The first on the list is the National Museum Complex “Moldova”, which brings together four museums and The clock tower.
- Art Museum
- Museum of the History of Moldova
- Ethnographic Museum of Moldova
- “Stefan Procopiu” Museum of Science and Technology
In fact, it is the Palace of Culture in Iasi about which you can find an extensive article here.
A tour of the museum takes a few hours so get ready for it.
Or you can climb the clock to see the panorama of the city live and listen to the stories
Immediately next to the Palace is Palas Mall Iasi which is also very large. Shopping to high standards, believe me!
2. At the big fight with the 1st place is “Eminescu’s Lime”.
Located in Copou Park, almost in the middle of the park, it has a venerable age of over 500 years, it has undergone many treatments but it seems that it handles very well being green and strong. In front of it is a bust of the great poet and is the place to take pictures for tourists. And if you still arrive in Copou, walk through the park because it is very nicely arranged.
3. University of Iasi
Your path passes and stops obligatorily at the University of Iasi in the Hall of Lost Steps. Here you have a kind of 3 in 1! Balasa + library + classroom.

The Metropolitan Cathedral of Iasi was built during the reign of Ioan Sturdza, prince of Metropolitan Veniamin Costache, between 1833 and 1842, according to the plans of the Austrian architects Johann and Gustav Freiwald. After an interruption of 40 years, due to the fall of the central vault, the construction is resumed, through the care of Metropolitan Iosif Naniescu, between 1880 and 1886, the architect being Alexandru Orascu. It was inaugurated in 1887, the Cathedral being painted by Gheorghe Tattarescu.
