First mentions of this city appeared in 1466. For a long time Chisinau has been a boyar patrimony. Today this is a large historical and cultural center. For convenience the city is divided into Low and High. You can see ancient buildings built in medieval times in Low Chisinau, while High Chisinau is considered the business center of the city. Each year new modern buildings appear here.
Probably, Organ Hall and National Drama Theater located opposite to it are main cultural sights of the city. Between these sights is located Great National Gathering Square – the biggest and most beautiful square in Chisinau. Victory Square is located in the center of the city. This square is built in honor of a famous commander Kutuzov who has defeated Turkish troops. A park is located near the square. If you make a walk on it, you will reach one of the most important religious sights of the city – the Cathedral. This church was built in 1830. Today its halls feature an exhibition of the local Art Museum.
