The archeological site “Ruins of the Church Museum - eparchial house, house of Teodor Sabău” will be added to the Register of Local Historic Monuments of the municipality of Chisinau. Besides, the relevant draft decision provides that archeological diggings near the Old Sobor will be continued.
“For the first time this year, we allocated money from the municipal budget for archeological excavations. The road to the area was closed and a fence that was illegally placed on the municipality’s territory was removed so as to enable archeologists to work,” stated mayor Ion Ceban.
The ruins of the building dating from 1795 were found in the historical nucleus of Chisinau, in Râșcani district. The foundations of a building and three underground stone structures that were demolished in the 1960s were discovered in that area.
It is also planned to launch a project to conserve the traces of the disappeared buildings – the Church “Mikhail and Gabriel Archangels” (Old Cathedral) and the Church Museum – on the area near Eugen Ionesco Theater.
According to the mayor, the archeological excavations performed as from the autumn of 2021 there will be continued so as to reconstruct the history of the city, to restore, conserve and protect the archeological sites that have a great historical and archeological value.
