Monuments - Moldova
Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, has many beautiful parks. Locals and tourists can visit them and enjoy taking a stroll. So, let’s see some of the most impressive parks of the city:
- Stefan cel Mare Park is the oldest park in Moldova, created at the beginning of the 19th century, and it was named after the ruler Stefan the Great. Its two special features are the huge water fountain and the Alley of Classics, an alley decorated with busts of classic literary figures and political leaders from Moldova.
- Valea Morilor Park is usually mentioned as Komsomolsky Lake due to the big lake in the middle of it. It is interesting that a small beach is located there. Moreover, there are natural springs (the most known is the ‘’Tamara’s Spring’’) and an impressive waterfall staircase that lights up at night. In 2009, Moldavian archaeologists discovered the fragments of a mammoth skeleton at the bottom of an old lake in the park.
- Valea Trandafirilor Park or the Rose Valley is a garden, located in the Botanica District of Chisinau, and has three lakes which constitute an ideal choice for picnics and boat tours. It was opened in early 1968, on a hillside which is cultivated with roses, and has paths around the water. At the edge of the park, there is the Memorial of Chernobyl Victims.
