The park contains an abundance of statues and monuments, including an 1885 monument to Pushkin, the oldest surviving monument in the city.

  • I give this place five stars because of the great people watching I experienced while here. It's good place to meet up with friends or just relax and see what there is to see.
  • Very nice statue of Stephen the Great, a former great ruler of Moldova (made of the Republic of Moldova together with Moldova Region from Romania). Nice landmark too.
  • Always looking spectacular, in a very beautiful and clean place! Nearby are a few lovely parks.
  • A nice central location at the point of the primary historical strip. At the entrance to a beautiful park, Stefan is honored as a sort of founding father of Moldova, this is a revered man and a respected monument.
  • A nice place to contemplate in the city center. During the summer you can rest on the stone benches, but during winter you would find the too cold.
