This house first intrigued me by the quirky modern art sculptures in the garden. The house is classically attractive from the outside, but the upstairs interior made me think I could have lived here. However, there is no showing of bathrooms, except for a curtained...More

Palace of Culture remodeling is complete, and it's gorgeous. Stop in the museum. Buy tickets straight ahead in the hall upon entering. Currently, there is a gold, silver, and jewelry exhibition of pieces dating back 2,000 or so years. Also, exhibition of Iasi's early history....More

Some of the chambers that I have visited on the famous Le Louvre museum of Paris could be compared with this location. I believe it to be a very accurate picture of the mid Romanian 1800. The staff is also nice (except for one staff...More
