    Mihai Eminescu

    Mihai Eminescu is the most famous poet in Romania; everywhere in Romania you'll find statues of him, and streetnames bearing his name. In Botosani, this is still more the case, because the man was born in Botosani. In Strada 1 Decembrei there is a house with a plaquette which tells that this is the place where Eminescu was born.

    Botosani, Synagogue

    In the beginning of the twentieth century, more then 15000 jews were living in Botosani. Most of them had professional jobs or were shop owners. There were about 70 synagogues in the city. There are only two or three of them left, and one is still functioning as a synagogue. The synagogue was built in 1834. From the outside it is not so special, and it is surrounded by dull apartment blocks. It is defitely worth seeing the synagogue from thew inside, as it is one of the few frescoes synagogues in Romania. On the ceiling there are paintings of the tribes of Israel.
