History

Opened in 1870, the Grand Railway Station first connected Iași to Czernowitz in Bukovina, Austria-Hungary and, after two years, to Bucharest.

The original building designed by Julian Zachariewicz and inspired by the Venetian Doge's Palace, is 133.8 metres (439 ft) long, has 113 rooms and is listed in the National Register of Historic Monuments.

In 1928-1930, two additional wings were symmetrically added to each side of the building. In 1980, a new separate building was constructed on the north side of the complex station and named Iași Nord.

The main buildings of the station have recently been restored with modern additions.-

Passenger services

As of 2013, Iași railway station serves about 110 trains in a typical day, including domestic trains to and from a majority of Romanian cities. Additionally, international trains run to Chişinău and Ungheni, in the Republic of Moldova.

The main lines in Iaşi are Făurei – Tecuci – Iaşi and Iaşi – Paşcani.

Local transit

The station is served by several tram and bus lines operated by RATP and Unistil, the local transit operators.
