The local “Iulian Antonescu” History Museum houses important finds from the Dacian era. Excellent examples are found also in the Ethnography Museum and in the Natural History Museum. The “Vasile Anestin” astronomic complex is well worth a visit.
The Precista Church, built by Stephen the Great, is one of the most representative of Bacau. The churches, historical buildings andmuseum complexes make up an interesting tourist route.
The tour of the orthodox monasteries in the region of Bacau is a wonderful experience.
Although not known to be on the tourist trail, Bacau is worth a visit for its almost untouched historical heritage and for its cultural identity of which the Mihail Jora Philharmonic Orchestra Filarmonica has been an ambassador for decades.
