About The St. Nicholas Royal Church

The Saint Nicholas Royal Church is an Orthodox church, built between 1491-1492 by Stephan the Great (Stefan cel Mare).

In the reign of Stephen the Great, the city Iasi began to develop (1457-1504). He rebuilt the courts and ordered the construction of a church dedicated to "Saint Nicolae", near the royal court, at east.

The name "Domnesc" comes from the fact that here were anointed the majority of the Moldovian rulers Despot Voda, Gheorghe Stefan, Dimitrie Cantemir, Grigore al II-lea Ghica and Constantin Mavrocordat.  The last ruler who was anointed in this place of worship was Grigore Alexandru Ghica.
