   "Trei Ierarhi" Church
  This monument is the diamond of Iasi architecture and one of the most beautiful romanian folklore masterpieces.
   According to the legend, it was built by 50 workers in 80 years but we know certainly that it was built between 1637-1642, and rebuilt in 1882 by architect Andre Lecomte de Nouy.
   This church has an important role in promoting the romanian culture (here it was printed one of the former romanian books - "Cazania").

   The romanian students will be glad to show you the monuments above and many others that we are proud of. Of course the places like parks, disco and pubs won't be forgotten !
