Right on the main pedestrian street, this small and beautiful church must be visited when you're in Iasi. The external walls carved from bottom to the top are amazing. The interior is also worth seeing.

I saw this church too during my trip to Iasi and I liked it a lot. It has a unique exterior design and a much more original architecture. I recommend it for all tourists. You can also enter inside and see it from a closer angle. It has been maintained well even if it's very old.

Beautiful Church entirely carved, quite small but a must for anyone who travels there. The carvings are impressive, the church quite small but makes you feel small when you walk by.

This is a monument of sculpture and architecture, built around faith and hopes. It is a small church inside, but the most beautifully crafted building in Romania.
