One of the city's favourite parks offers a welcome respite on warm summer days. Its forte is the incredible diversity of plant and animal life, with carefully curated green arrangements and blooming flowers delighting visitors. There is a children's playground on site.
Do & See
The city's main artery is the Stefan cel Mare Boulevard, one of many Moldovan landmarks named after the revered Stephen III of Moldavia, whose monument also marks the entry to Chisinau's central park (named, likewise, after the 16th century prince). From here, it's a manageable to walk to most of Chisinau's city centre attractions. The city is delightfully green, and its pleasant parks readily provide refuge on hot summer days.
