The Classics Alley Of National Literature

Chisinau, Moldova

The Classics Alley is a sculptural complex located in the Central park. On both sides of the alley there are the red granite busts of Romanian literature figures and the main leaders of the Republic of Moldova. The alley is located between the boulevard Ștefan cel Mare and the bronze bust of  Alexandru Pușchin, set on a granite column and made by the Russian sculptor Alexandr Opeșuchin in 1885. The alley was built and received its name in 1958 and from that time it became one of the most important touristic attractions in Chișinău. At the beginning, there were only 12 sculptures, but after the fall of teh Soviet Union, teh local authorities added busts of Romanian and Moldovan writers and poets who were banned during the Soviet regime. Currently, along the alley there are 26 busts including that of Alexandr Pușkin.
