A landmark for Chisinau's historical site is the Holy Gate, also known under another name - the Arch of Victory. This arch is located in the heart of the city, which was built in 1840. It has a massive bell, the weight of which is more than 6 tons. This huge bell was cast from melted Turkish cannons. This historical monument looks very impressive.
The oldest building in Chisinau is Mazarache Church, which was built in the middle of the 13th century. The history of this church is inextricably linked with the name of the city treasurer Vasile Mazarachi, on whose personal means it was built. Despite the fact that the history of the existence of this church had to go through many reconstructions, it managed to retain its original appearance almost completely. In the walls of the church there are also many interesting artifacts.
The city has a lot of beautiful places for walking. One of the most picturesque is Stefan cel Mare Central Park. It was founded in 1818 and occupies a vast territory of 7 hectares. This park is remarkable not only for its natural beauties. On its territory there are many beautiful monuments, including a very beautiful monument to A.C. Pushkin. In the warm season in the park, there are gorgeous fountains. It is loved not only by the guests of the city, but also by the locals.
