Fi­no al 1991 sul ba­sa­men­to pog­gia­va la sta­tua di Le­nin, og­gi in­ve­ce si er­ge la sta­tua del Prin­ci­pe e San­to Ste­fan cel Ma­re no­to an­che come l’eroe del­la lot­ta di li­be­ra­zio­ne dall’in­va­so­re ot­to­ma­no. The statue of the national he­ro of Mol­da­vians is found at the en­tran­ce of the park of the sa­me na­me and re­pre­sen­ts the heart of the city cen­tre as well as being the main mee­ting pla­ce of lo­cal re­si­den­ts. Un­til 1991, a statue of Le­nin sat on its ba­se, but to­day a statue of the Prin­ce and Saint Ste­fan cel Ma­re is found the­re, who kno­wn for being a he­ro du­ring the strug­gle for li­be­ra­tion from Ot­to­man invaders.

PAR­CO STE­FAN CEL MA­RE / BU­LE­VARD STE­FAN CEL MA­RE Uno dei più bei par­chi me­glio conservati del­la cit­tà. Al suo in­ter­no una bel­lis­si­ma fon­ta­na e di­ver­se statue di scrit­to­ri e poe­ti ru­me­ni e rus­si. Uscen­do dal par­co lun­go il via­let­to del­le statue si tro­va il Tea­tro dell’Ope­ra e del Bal­let­to di so­vie­ti­ca memoria. Nel piaz­za­le an­ti­stan­te, da po­co ri­co­strui­to, due fon­ta­ne dan­zan­ti il­lu­mi­na­te. Da qui si può am­mi­ra­re l’im­po­nen­te Pa­laz­zo Pre­si­den­zia­le co­no­sciu­to an­che come “Pa­laz­zo di Ve­tro” da­gli abi­tan­ti del­la ca­pi­ta­le. One of the best kept parks of the city, it has a beautiful foun­tain and va­rious sta­tues of Ro­ma­nian and Rus­sian wri­ters and poets. The Ope­ra and Bal­let Thea­tre is found ou­tsi­de the park, along the avenue of the sta­tues. In the squa­re along­si­de, whi­ch has re­cen­tly been re­built, the­re are two il­lu­mi­na­ted “dancing” foun­tains. From he­re, you can ad­mi­re the im­po­sing Pre­si­den­tial Pa­la­ce, whi­ch is al­so kno­wn as the “Cry­stal Pa­la­ce” by in­ha­bi­tan­ts of the ca­pi­tal.

In ori­gi­ne ope­ra dell’ar­chi­tet­to Abraam Mel­ni­cov che la di­se­gnò e ter­mi­nò nell’an­no 1836.

It was ori­gi­nal­ly de­si­gned by the ar­chi­tect Abraam Mel­ni­cov at the end of 1836. Due to va­rious ar­med con­flic­ts, the buil­ding was de­stroyed se­ve­ral ti­mes, and the cur­rent struc­tu­re is the re­sult of work that en­ded in 1996.
