This alley is the favourite resting place of the many. Here you may see the monuments to the famous personalities: M.Eminescu, B.P. Hasdeu, N. Milescu-Spataru, V. Alecsandri, A. Mateevici, I. Creanga, etc.
This very nice and small park. The entrance to the park features a monument dedicated to Stefan cel Mare (Stephan the Great). It has minimum four interesting things to see: the fountain in the middle of the park; Stefan the Great and the Saint Monument; Stefan the Great and the Saint Public Garden with Calssics' Alley and Alexandr Pushkin Monument. What is more, it is always nice to seat and rest.:)
It is no surprise that the most central parc was named after the national Moldovan hero. There is a statue of the man in front of the parc. The parc itself is not big but it's good to get a quick rest from the city heat and to relax. Nice place.
