President Palace

Located in the very heart of Chisinau, the President Palace is a relatively new monument of national importance. The glass-clad building was erected in 1984-1987. Yuri Tumanean, Arkady Zaltman built the building, and Viktor Iavorski, the style of the building, is high-tech and has elements with symbolic functions. The symbolism is represented through art and innovation. The building was built on the site of the German Lutheran Church, dating back to the 1830s. It was made to be the new building of the Supreme Soviet of the Moldavian S.S. The Moldovan Declaration of Independence of 27 August 1991 was signed and adopted in the palace by the Supreme Soviet. After Moldova gained its independence, the building became the residence of Moldova’s President starting in 2001. The presidency building represents the residence of the elected head of state elected by citizens of the republic – based on universal, equal, and direct electoral law, under free and secret ballot – for four years. The President of the Republic of Moldova, in his/her position as head of state, represents the state and is the guarantor of the national sovereignty and independence and the unity and territorial integrity of the state (Article 77 of the Constitution).
