City Hall

One of the first buildings that will catch your eye is the City Hall. Be ready now we will travel in the 19th century but more precisely at the end of it. When the mayor of the city was Carol Schmidt, he took the initiative to build a new headquarters for the city duma, on the place occupied by the fire department. The design was entrusted to Mitrofan Elladi, then the architect of the city. Alexandru Bernardazzi was invited to help him. The architecture of the building is in an eclectic spirit based on the architecture of the Italian Renaissance. This building has an elegant façade with arched windows. The walls, draped in a faint shade of beige and white, complement a sleek clock tower at the top. The building suffered terrible damage during the Second World War and required considerable efforts to be returned to its former glory. Today, a commemorative plaque to architect Bernardazzi is placed on its front wall. The construction of the duma’s headquarters was completed in 1901. Here is situated the first Tourist Information Center which was opened in 2017, here you’ll find all the details you need about Chisinau.
