Although there are a good many videos about Iasi on YouTube (the "sad city", the "city of dreams" etc) I haven't found it particularly easy to find out much more about Iasi - other than that it is sometimes known as The City of Seven Hills.
Iasi is also home to the oldest Romanian university, and is a city known for its culture.
Hopefully Suzzmoon, (my Romanian is not great, but I think that she is a geographer and student, perhaps a geography student) will be able to tell us more....????
For a more general flavour of Romania, have a look at this video from http://www.romaniatravel.com/:
