Snapshot: Ștefan cel Mare Statue
On the main road between the cities of Vaslui and Barlad there is a fabulous stature of him, set back from the road. The statue commemorates the Battle of Vaslui in 14752.
Stefan cel Mare
We found this stunning statue through looking at stop off points on our journey from Galati to Iasi. One of the best ways I’ve found of doing this and finding great new locations is to start Geocaching. This was a cache (although we didn’t actually get this one – can’t win them all!) so we thought we’d stop off and we were so glad we did. There is a small amount of parking on the other side of the road – be careful crossing, they drive fast! There is also a few benches at the bottom if you were stopping to have a bite to it as well. Otherwise, the walk up to the top is tiring so not ideal for everyone but once up there the view is great! There is also an eternally burning flame for Stefan which makes it even more interesting. I was really glad we stopped off to see this one.
