Your exploration of the county starts, almost invariably, in the city of Iași. Almost any place here reflects the tumultuous Moldovian history; Iași is the most important cultural, university, and economic center of the region. The legacy left by the years when the city was the capital of the historical region is reflected in many princely churches and monasteries nearby the city, which add to the religious pilgrimage started with the monasteries in Bucovina.

Beyond churches, museums, romantic parks, try a one-day escape from Iasi. Venture in search of mansions or castles of local noble families. The one in Miclăușeni, for example, represents an architectural curiosity that no tourist on holiday in Iași should miss.

The story of the Grasa de Cotnari grape variety, unique in Romania - imported by Ștefan cel Mare, history says - is very interesting for any tourist. Whether you are a wine drinker or not, you can only hear the story when visiting the Cotnari winery. Alternatively, try a longer trip to several wineries and historic sites in Iasi County.

South of the city of Iasi, the Repedea Geological and Paleontological Reserve is the ideal place for group or family walks, with your dog, on foot or by bike, for panoramic photos, and geological explorations. A group of volunteers marked a series of routes that connect Repedea Forest to Bârnova Forest and several surrounding villages. Along the way, the trekker can find hermitages, monasteries, meadows, fossil sites, secular trees. The paths are perfect for relaxing walks around Iasi and discovering places other than the popular ones.

If you are a fan of a challenging climb, Iași County is not necessarily on your list of places to visit. And yet, connoisseurs know that you can do a nice workout of sport climbing and bouldering on certain rocks on the Repedea Plateau. So the next time you pass through Iasi, take your equipment and check it out.
