Repedea Hill, one of the 7 hills on which lies the old town of Iasi, is originally an ancient sea bottom, which, in time, withdrew south.

Repedea Hill has a position that gives it a very good status, being exactly at the boundary between Moldova Plain and the Moldovan Central Plateau, at the contact between the forest and forest steppe, and therefore vegetation, fauna, morphology of the relief give it a special charm.
