Iasi, Romania, is one of major cities in Romania with population of about three hundred thousand. Although it was the capital of the vassal Republic of Moldova for almost three hundred years, it is not a typical tourist city with too many monuments and things to see. A major reason for that is the fact that the city was completely destroyed several times.

Today, Iasi has five universities, so there are many young people in the city; not surprisingly, there are good places to go out at the weekend. Eating out is also not expensive and that is great for budget travelers. Places worth visiting are the Monastery Fortress, the Palace of Culture, the Old Town, the Trei Ierarhi Monastery, the National Theater, the building of the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, and many churches and temples. Everything is close and within walking distance. Moreover, public transportation is very cheap. All in all, Iasi is a nice city where you can spend a day or two. It is also recommended to do so if you travel from Bucharest go Chisinau or the other way, as it is on the way and it would be a pity not to visit Iasi for a day. Be aware that winters can be cold -- travel prepared.

Although you do not have a very wide choice of hostels in Iasi, Romania, but at least you can enjoy very good prices for good facilities as Iasi, Romania hostels tend to offer a great ratio between price and quality. The city is not a tourist magnet and, not surprisingly, most Iasi, Romania hostels are located very close to the train station. There are also a few hostels in Iasi, Romania, in the city center. Anyway, the train station is not far from the city center -- probably ten minutes on foot -- so it is hard to make a wrong choice in terms of location.
