The First Monument in the Romanian Principalities - The Obelisk of the Lions (November 1834, Iasi, in Copou Park), was raised as a sign of gratitude towards Russia and Turkey, in the honor of the first law referring to the political, administrative and legal organization, - "The Organic Rules" (1832). The monument was erected by the architects Johan Freywald and Mihail Singurov, and the project was signed by Gheorghe Asachi. Having 13 m height and 10 t weight, the column of rock is held by four giant lions, created at Lemberg, by the sculptor Johann Semser.
