The first mentioning about the city, we find in 1436 in the charter of Moldovan magistrates Ilyash I. On the right bank of the river Byk arose the settlement, which gradually rose up above the slope.

  • The architecture of the historical center is perfectly combined with the new post-war buildings on the main streets. On whole neighborhoods, administrative building’s facade is decorated with stone carvings and colored ceramics. The city acquired a modern view of the capital. In the center of town at the entrance of the oldest park, there is erected the monument of the Moldovan ruler Stefan cel Mare si Sfint. In 1885, this park unveiled the monument to Alexander Pushkin.

  • The residents of the capital treat with due care on the military past. In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Second War Victory in 1975, the Memorial of Military Glory "Eternity" was built. Every year, on May 9 to the memorial come hundreds of thousands of residents and guests to pay tribute to those who died.
