A sublime Sunday, beautiful and full of ... nostalgia

in beautifulsunday •  15 days ago 

This was my last Sunday in Iasi, at least this year. I lived and worked in Iasi, one of the most interesting and beautiful cities in Romania since the beginning of this year, which is ten months. Ten beautiful months in which I mixed with pleasure both the status of tourist and the employee in a job that I liked. Now the job is over and I have to go to my house and my life in Bucharest. For the few who may not know, Bucharest is the capital of Romania. For those of you who don't know this, Romania is in Europe, in Eastern Europe.


A symbol of the city of Iasi is the Palace of Culture. It is considered one of the most beautiful palaces in Europe, especially seen at night. You cannot write about Iasi without remembering the Palace. That's why I also start at the Palace. It is located in the center of the city and is a perfect place for walking and relaxing.


I was lucky enough to stay very close to the Palace. Thus, all the days of relaxation started from the Palace area and here I refer to my favorite café, a place dear to me both for the excellent coffee it offers and for the friendship of the employees. There I feel and I felt at home. Every Sunday I spent there was sublime to me and I don't exaggerate when I say that. To sum up, any Sunday that is special should start with excellent coffee. At Coffee Story!






One of my friends working on Coffee Story has a very interesting life story. He is from Iasi but from a very young age, he left for Denmark. He stayed in Denmark for 13 years and then returned home to Romania, Iasi. With a ten- year -old child. I don't know about the baby's mother, he doesn't tell about her. We stand much talking, drinking coffee. He told me he was not too happy with his life here and decided that in a year he would leave ... to go to Australia. I was shocked by the ease with which he can break from a certain place ...

I, on the other hand, am nostalgic. I know I'll get out of here and probably won't see these places anymore. Many of the people I've met definitely won't meet. That saddens me.

In order not to leave me conquered by sadness, I decided to go and see a place that I like very much, that I will miss and probably I will not see it too soon ...

Botanical Garden

Probably the most beautiful garden in Romania!

I saw something I never thought I'd ever see. The queue to enter the Botanical Garden!



Then I understood ... the last warm and sunny day, as the forecasts say, and an exhibition of chrysanthemums have brought thousands of people out of homes.


The chrysanthemum exhibition

Well, the exhibition was not as big as I expected but it was very beautiful. Autumn flowers are very colorful and different, they must withstand less easy living conditions.





Thus I spent my last Sunday in Iasi. I started with the wonderful taste of a special cappuccino, made by my friends and I ended up admiring the autumn flowers at the famous botanical garden. It was a memorable day, beautiful and even sublime. For the first time, beauty didn't cover nostalgia.

Thank you!

That is a beautiful review of Iasi. I have never been there, so it was nice to get a glimpse of the castle, a great coffee shop, and the botanical gardens! I'm like you - I have a hard time leaving places. But I have left many, and they all still have a place in my heart.

Thank you! I'm so glad to hear that...it's true, must have a place in the heart!

Very beautiful review

Thank you, I'm glad you like it!

I could see how you could have some nostalgia visiting places like the Palace of culture and that awesome coffee shop.
What a serious burst of colors at the Botanical Gardens - it must have been something to see all those gorgeous blooms - so colorful!

Thank you! I'm glad I managed to convey this feeling of nostalgia and thank you for understanding the meaning of this post. I was afraid I would not succeed.

Thanks for the bit of Geography lessons. I know the Eastern Europe to Bucharest but not Iasi which seems like a nice place. Pity you will be going away but it's home you are heading to and having done something you enjoy for 10 months is not something many people have the opportunity.
All the best to the next moments.

Thank you! You're very right.

You're welcome

Lovely photos and a great review. Amazing to see the flowers in bloom in Autumn too!

Thank you very much! Thanks for curate.

The palace is truly a beautiful building, and those autumn flowers may be tough enough for the weather change, but still look as pretty and delicate as the flowers in springtime.

There are chrysanthemums that prefer a colder climate.

It truly is a beautiful city Romania i hope to get myself their some day 👍

Hope you do! Later ... is better.

It's definitely on my bucket list 👍

I hope you will like!
