Cool statue and great park
Sep 2019
Definitely worth a visit if you're in the city given the history and association the country has with Stephen the Great.

It's not the tallest statue you'll see and a quick stop is good before checking out the park which is a good space in the city to wander around.

Important to ,,Moldova's history

This statue of Stephen the great is located in the Stephen Cel Mare park. The great man behind this statue plays a great part in the history of Moldova, where he was prince of Moldova and resisted the ottoman empire ages ago. There is also another of his statue in a park in Romania.

Beautiful Park
Sep 2019
Amazed at how it seemed that the entire city was at the park, even with children, not something that you would find in a USA park that has the small electric toy cars for children to ride on and even the tandem bicycles for adults was an nice added touch to encourage families to visit the park. Even to not to anything but enjoy the scenery was great.

Nice enough statue in the centre of Chisinau
Oct 2019
This is an attractive enough statue in the centre of Chisinau to commemorate one of the most significant figures in the history of Moldova. The statue is located at the entrance to the park of the same name. A quick stop is sufficient.

He was important to Moldova
Oct 2019
Not a big deal, but Stephen Cel Mare was an importante person to Moldova´s history. Just to take some pictures with the streets at background.
There is a good park behind the monumento.

Nice monument
Nov 2019
Standing outside Stephen the Great park in central Chisinau, the statue commemorates Stephen III, who fought many battles with his neighbours - including Ukrainians, Romanians and Turks and is seen as one of the Moldavian greats.

As expected

Just an ordinary statue commemorating an ancient ruler. Nothing special about how it looks like. But it's nice to have some photos with it.

The Stephen the Great Monument.

The monument to Stephen the Great was designed by architect Alexandru Plămădeală in 1923. It was erected near the main entrance of the Stephen the Great Park in Central Chişinău. The monument was completed in 1927 and opened on 29 April 1928.

few days before the 1940 Soviet occupation of Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina, the monument was relocated to Vaslui, and its pedestal was blown up. On August 25, 1942, the monument was returned to Chişinău and taken back to Romania in 1944. In 1945, the Soviet authorities ordered the restoration of the monument to Chişinău. On 31 August 1989 the monument to Stephen the Great was returned to its original location.
