Known as The Cultural Capital of Romania, Iași is a symbol in Romanian history. The historian Nicolae Iorga said „There should be no Romanian who does not know of it”. Still referred to as The Moldavian Capital, Iași is the most important political, economic and cultural centre of the Moldavian region of Romania, as well as one of the oldest cities in our country. Deeply rooted in history, the city prides itself with publishing the first Romanian newspaper and establishing the first Romanian university, as well as the first National Theatre. Today, Iași is home to five universities.

It is located almost in the centre of the country and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. The city provides a mix of wonderful mountain scenery in the nearby Poiana Braşov and medieval history with German influences in the old town. The city is 176 km from Bucharest. Braşov is up there with Sinaia and the surrounding mountain resorts as the most visited city in Transylvania, Romania, and this is something that’s not in vain. Braşov boasts everything from dynamic modern city life to old world charm and fascinating scenery. Also, it’s pleasant to have some of the extras as well, including some of the best cleanliness records in the country, great transport and great food.

Other than Braşov city and its immediate attractions, the resorts of Poiana Braşov (12 km west) and Predeal (27 km south), are also well worth visiting.
