Iași for Expats

Iași for Expats

Iasi for expats who have settled here means more than just the largest town in the historic region of Moldova.

Iași was the capital of Romanian United Principalities two times between 1859-1862 and of Romania during the Great War, between 1916-1918.

Iași was the home of many great Romanian writers, poets and personalities. You can find memorial houses at every step and we reccomend you to take time to discover Iasi by walking the streets of ”Copou”, a beautifully preserved neighbourhood where many of the stories of the 19th century Iași took place.

In recent years, the city went through a process of restoration and it became a wonderful destination for those who want to enjoy a city break or need a starting point for their journeys in Eastern Romania, the Republic of Moldova or Ukraine.

The modernization of the Iași International Airport led to an opening for international businesses who were looking to settle in Iași.

Light trekking will take you on top of the Ceahlău mountains, only 2 hours drive from Iași.

North, towards the city of Botoșani, the Prut river has been tamed forming one of the larges man-made lakes in Romania, the Costești-Stânca reservoir. ,

The hills surrounding Iași are of a beauty of their own and their stories can be discovered by bycicle or through long runs or walks.

A gateway to another Moldova

Iași is only 20 km far from the border with the Republica of Moldova. This small, rather unknown country is one of the top fine wine producers in Europe. 

Best known for its hospitality, the Republic of Moldova hides fantastic tourist attractions, including the largest wine cellar in the world and the largest collection of fine wine, according to the Guinnes Book of Records. 

A few hours to the seaside

What do Iași expats have and those in Cluj or Timișoara don’t? Seaside!

Only 5 hours drive (soon reachable also by train), the city of Odessa is a multicultural historic destination that just craves being discovered.
