Monument sights in Moldova
- Sort by:
Grădina Publică Ştefan Cel Mare şi Sfint is the city's main strolling, cruising area. The park entrance is guarded by a 1928 statue of Ştefan himself. The medieval prince of Moldavia is the greatest symbol of Moldova's strong, brave past. Every Moldovan will be happy to tell you that during Ştefan's 40-year reign, he lost a mere two battles (out of anywhere from 34 to 47, depending on your source's level of enthusiasm).
Moldexpo, inside Parcul Valea Morilor, is an enormous international exhibition centre constantly hosting major expositions. Many tourists come here, however, to see the demoted Communist triumvirate of Lenin, Marx and Engels guarding the entrance. Though they were ignominiously moved here from a prize spot in front of the Parliament building, the pedestals are often overflowing with flowers.
