    Favorite thing: The square was created between the years 1966-1968, through the rebuilding of the aged centre of Piatra Neamt.
    The architect Iotiu realized the plans for the rebuilding.
    The garden, with its many trees and flowers, is a Landscape element is in the middle of the town.

    In the middle of the square is the statue of Stephen the Great, an artwork of the sculptor Oscar Han.

    Fondest memory: The well and the kiosk, the many benches and the nice avenues, the neat aspect of the park, are an important part of the new centre and a beautiful possibility for recuperation and silence.

    The street
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: That is a very old street, with many old and important buildings, with much romanticism and silence.
    The street begins in centre of the town, at the old Princely Church of Stephen the Great, and finishes exactly at the gate from the central graveyard of Piatra Neamt.
    The inhabitants of the town name this street, in the joke, also "the last way".
    The chestnut trees that stand on the two parts of the street are a peculiarity of this avenue of Piarta Neamt.
    The most edifices of this street, old or new, are all handsome villas, with comfort and class.
    The national college "Petru Rares", the Voivodal Court, the zoological-park "Cozla", the children's palace, the sports ground, the house of Elena Cuza(the wife of the Romanian prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza), the technical college, the stadium "Ceahlaul", and the central graveyard, are only from the great destination on this street.
    This wonderful street has a particular place in my heart, because here, into these surroundings is the house, in which I was born.
    Many people like to go for a walk on this quiet street.
    It is the street of the love, of the memories and the romances.
