Ștefan cel Mare Central Park (Romanian: Grădina Publică „Ștefan cel Mare” / Parcul „Ștefan cel Mare”) is the main park in Central Chișinău, Moldova. It is the oldest park in Moldova and spans about 7 hectares (17 acres). It has gained the nickname "The Park of the Lovers" in Chișinău due to its popularity as a meeting spot for couples. The park contains 50 species of trees, some of which are quite old, the mulberries and acacias being between 130 and 180 years. The Alley of Classics is located in the park.
The park was originally laid out in 1818 by Russian military engineers during the reign of Alexander I. Under the direction of architect Bogdan Eitner, the present-day alleys were created, as well as hundreds of acacias, limes, and flower beds. The park was initially enclosed by a wicker fence to prevent cows, goats, and other animals from entering.

One of the most beautiful places in the capital. You'll enjoy to rest there whatever the weather is. Furthermore, Orange provides free WiFi so you can easily work there as well.

I went in this plaza to check it out and found it to be a simple place to take a seat and relax after walking all about the town. I saw an old guy opposite me falling asleep on a bench. I took a photo of him and laughingly showed it to friend of mine. He said, "Don't laugh. It will be you one day." And he was right; I like to just take a seat by myself and ponder the world. I will be this guy one day.

Nice quite spot in the otherwise chaotic center. Ideal to sit on a bench to read a book.

Cosy, in city centre, comfortable and very green, but no public WCs.
