The Alexandru Ioan Cuza University (Romanian: Universitatea „Alexandru Ioan Cuza”; acronym: UAIC) is a public university. Founded one year after the establishment of the Romanian state, by an 1860 decree of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza, under whom the former Academia Mihăileană was converted to a university, the University of Iași, as it was named at first, is the oldest university of Romania, and one of its advanced research and education institutions.

Union Square. Landmark of the city. It is the intersection of three major streets: “Ștefan cel Mare” Boulevard (the former Big Street), Alexandru Lăpușneanu Street (the former Serbian Street) and Cuza Vodă Street (the former Golia Street). The square has a special meaning to Romanians because in front of Petre Bacalu’s Inn (situated in the past on the parking space in front of Victoria Cinema), “Hora Unirii” was danced for the first time in 1857, and then, after the announcement of the Union of Romanian Principalities on the 24th of January 1859, which was made through the double election of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza. http://iasi.travel/en/stories/the-union-square/

The gorgeous Hungarian State Opera House (Magyar Állami Operaház). Neo-Renaissance style. Opened to the public in 1884. Interestingly enough, that’s the same year that the Budapest Keleti Train Station opened, so Budapest was HOT and modern that year!

TIMISOARA, ROMANIA: REVOLUTIONARY

The national flag of Romania (drapelul României) – (1866–1948, 1989–present) Interesting fact: during the communist era, a coat of arms had been added to the middle (in the center of the yellow stripe) – and starting on 17 December 1989, during the revolution at Timișoara, the protesters began waving flags with the Communist coat of arms cut out of the middle. The coat of arms was perceived as a symbol of Nicolae Ceaușescu’s dictatorial regime. These flags were called “the flag with the hole” (drapelul cu gaură).
