Worth visiting, especially during spring. I come here often, I like running up the hill. Monks are very nice, they gave me once carrott soup. 😊 The place is so peaceful, it's calming to just sit on the grass and enjoy birds chirping.

Cetatuia Monastery is located on a place where you can admire the city of Iasi. The monastic assembly is very beautiful. It encompasses all classical settings. The church is a special building, being a special piece of architecture.

This is a well preserved specimen of the typical church-monastery conglomerate you'd see all around this area of Romania - this one is unique in how well it is preserved, mostly in original form.

I was first brought here by my fiancé who wanted to surprise me. He wanted to show me the breath-taking view of the city during night. And I must admit, it was amazing. The Monastry was beautiful when the moon was above; illuminated so well,...More

Advice: Hike up there, to the church. You can either go through the many footpaths in the forest (more appropriate in the summer) or follow the car road (better in the winter, not as adventurous and rewarding as the footpaths, though). When you get there...More

Cetatuia it's a fortified church situated on a hill above the city, with a great view over a part of the city (if you know how to reach the observatory) and in the summer with great inside gardens. It should be one of Iasi atractions.
