The Statue of Stefan cel Mare from Podul Inalt

Vaslui, judetul Vaslui

AddressLoc. Bacauani,

Description

The Statue of Stefan cel Mare was inaugurated in 1975, part of the Monumental Ensemble of Podul Inalt (The Tall Bridge), to commemorate 500 years since the victory of Moldovans led by Stefan cel Mare. The statue is placed on a pedestal with a height of 8 meters, dressed in marble, at the end of a long series of steps, also wrapped in marble.

Made of bronze, work of sculptor Mircea Stefanescu, the statue has a height of 6.90 meters and weighing 19 tonnes. Podul Inalt is the venue of the battle between the Ottoman and Moldovan forces led by Stefan cel mare, on January 10, 1475, near the city of Vaslui.
Name of Podul Inalt became a symbol of Vaslui, is commonly used for local representations: Inspectorate for Emergency Situations of Podul Inalt Vaslui county, Podul Inalt Chess Cup, Podul Inalt Street in Vaslui etc.

Located at approx. 12 km south of Vaslui, in the village Bacauani, on  the venue of the famous battle was built a great monument that depicted Stefan cel Mare on horseback, the best military strategist of the fifteenth century, who obtained here one of the most brilliant victories in Romanian history.

Considered by some as a place of pilgrimage for special emotional it produces, before 1989, at the statue of Stefan cel Mare from Podul Inalt were organized many tours and, for years, the best scholars in Vaslui County were listed among the pioneers.

At the base of the monumental ensemble is a fresco, also worked in bronze, depicting a scene in which the prince received a message from the Turks and a scene in which Stefan is in the middle of ordinary people. The equestrian statue from Podul Inalt is the place where annually the spirit of the Great Prince Stefan cel Mare is evoked (Prince of Moldavia between 1459-1504).
