Interesting and nice outside, but it's really beautiful inside. The church is Byzantine in style. On site is a small museum with old and rare liturgical books.

St. Sabbas the Sanctified Church is one of the 100 churches in Iasi and it has a special feeling to it. The painting is impressive and the priests are very welcoming. I suggest you also visit the museum in the attic.
