Stefan cel Mare Central Park

Stefan cel Mare Central Park is the oldest and the main park in Moldova which is almost 200 years old. It boasts an area of about seven hectares. It is used to be called as the Pushkin Park but it was later on named after Stefan the Great. That is why if you go to the place, you would see two statues - the statue of Stefan the Great and another for Alexander Pushkin.

The park is decorated with refreshing fountains, which also enhanced its beautiful aura. While it has become one of the popular meeting place for couples, it is also known today as the Lover's Park. Very recently, free Wi-Fi access point was launched in the park and that made it just perfect for everyone who want to keep in touch while meandering the wonderful view of the park.

      I have always heard about Moldova on CNN, Al Jazeera, BBC and so on but i never knew the capital city. I have never even heard it mentioned anywhere. the only thing that comes to mind when i remember Romania is Ceausescu and his wife. I hope Romania is now as beautiful as Moldova. This is a very informative hub for people living on other continents.
