Near the Dosoftei house and the Palace of culture in Iasi you shall find this small but very interesting church.
Built during the reign of Kind Stephen the Great in the period of 1491-1492 - it was refurbished through the ages - even on the interior the Romanian royal family was added on the walls.
Entrance is free of charge - but it is not open around the clock, so try to be there at reasonable hours - after 9:0 a.m. and before 6 p.m. for instance.
The frescoes inside are interesting but are covered in a layer of candle smoke - and like in the majority of orthodox churches in Romania there is a dim light so you need to really focus to see the items inside.
Overall very interesting - if you are in the area definitely worth taking a look.

The church is very beautiful both inside and outside, with a nice architecture. I recommend to go to the mass on Sunday morning, the choir is absolutely fantastic. Very inspiring.

It's worth visiting the oldest church in Iasi, built in the 15th century by the time Stephen the Great was the Moldavian region's ruler. It's a real historical monument, with a particular inside and outside design and architecture, reminding of the times when Iasi was first time mentioned as a city in old documents. It's easy to get there and visit it as it is situated near the main Iasi attraction, like the Palace of Culture and Palas Mall.

On July 8, 2007, my wife who had been studying in Thessaloniki Greece, and I, who went to Greece for independent research in 2003, were married in this "royal" Church of St. Nicholas (the princes of Moldavia where crowned in this church). The iconography was exquisite! and the choir who sang for our wedding was wonderful.

This little church touched my heart. This time, in visit for 2 days in Iasi what ever I was doing, when ever my steps brought me near this church, i had the feeling that i have to see it.
Finaly, Saturday morning, before leaving we went in the morning . at begining the church was closed at 9:00 am, but fortunately while we were circleing it on the outside to look at the beautiful paintings, a lady came and opened it.
The church is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside, paintings are very clear. we had a feeling of pace inside. the icons were so beautiful.
This is the oldest church in Iasi and even if restored during the monarchy, it makes you think of its founder - one of the greatest kings in Moldova - Stefan cel Mare.
Outside paintings are different from what i saw in other churches - never seen before paited philosophers.
I still debate if is first position in Iasi churches or should I put it on second place after Trei Ierarhi.

After the Palace and the mall, we decided to visit this church located in front of the Palace near Dosoftei House. The church is gorgeous inside out and the staff inside even gave us info in English detailing the history of this church several hundreds of years old.

The surroundings are also greatly maintained and everyone is so friendly and polite. No fee to be paid, just like at the Palace if you are to visit it minus the 4 museums which would cost you 40 lei visiting all of them.
