Statue of Queen Elizabeth

Made in the 1937 year by sculptor Ion Jalea, paid by public subscription, the statuary group consists of two elements: "Queen Elizabeth's Statue" and "Muza cu harpa".

In the 50 years, the communist regime decided to remove the statue and replace it with another work of the same artist: "Arcaş resting." In the 1975 year, the "Muza cu harpa" piece was exhibited in the center of Medgidia, while the Queen's statue remained in the basement of the Constanta Art Museum. Following the rebuilding of 2013, the statuary group regains its place on the casino cliff.

Queen Elizabeth married 1869 with Karol von Hohenzollern, becoming the first Queen of Romania in the 1881 year. Elisabeth von Wied, or the literary pseudonym Carmen Sylva, has been involved in the life of the country, has set up hospitals, ambulance services, funded for charitable purposes and promoted Romanian crafts.
