A Moldovan Monument: The Candle of Gratitude

The monument is built on the rocks over the Nistru River. It is considered as a very special work of art for another reason. It is built in the memory of the cultural monuments in Moldova that were destroyed in the past.

This national monument was the brain child of a famous Moldavian classical writer Ion Durta. This man always had a deep respect for the tradition and culture of Moldova. He wanted to pay homage to their ancestors who worked so hard to preserve the Moldavian culture.

“Time stands still when it passes through this monument. It is a silent witness of many hopes and agonies, dreams and hard works of many past generations.”
