Iași is a city that has always been a forefront of Romanian arts, culture, and education. It is home to the oldest university in Romania, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, founded in 1860, which adds a youthful vigor to the city’s atmosphere. Iași is also a city of many "firsts" for Romania: the first Romanian newspaper, the first theatre, and the first museum are all part of its illustrious history.
The city is rich in architectural treasures, with numerous churches, monasteries, and palaces adorning its landscape. The Palace of Culture, an architectural marvel and the most iconic building in Iași, hosts four of the city's main museums. It's impossible to talk about Iași without mentioning its vibrant arts scene. The city is home to the oldest national theatre in Romania, the Vasile Alecsandri National Theatre, and it frequently hosts cultural events, art exhibitions, and music festivals that celebrate both traditional and contemporary art forms.
Iași is not just about high culture; it’s also a city of cozy cafes, welcoming people, and verdant parks, all set against the backdrop of its undulating hills. Whether you’re an avid historian, an art enthusiast, or simply someone looking to explore a city that’s a little off the beaten path, Iași has something to offer.
