  • I have been to Iasi several times but this was my first visit to the Theatre. Well worth the visit and we were lucky in that there was a very efficient guide  more »
  • Beautiful theater, to visit, if you find yourself coming to Iasi. One of the most beautiful theatres I've ever seen.

  • Next to the most touristic street of Iasi, it is worth taking a walk. The garden that is on the way is also worth it.
