The Lion Obelisk

In 1834, the central monumen tin the Copou Park, the Lion Obelisk was built.

It is also known as the Monument of the Organic Regulations because it celebrates the quasi-constitutional organic law issued in 1831-1832 by the Russian imperial authorities in Moldavia and Wallachia. Many engineers have contributed to the making of the monument: Johann Freywald, who also designed the Metropolitan Cathedral, Mihail Singurov, a Russian engineer, and then the scientist Gheorghe Asachi, the one who managed to finish it. The monument is made of stone blocks from Șcheia, near Iași.
