Statue of Queen Elizabeth

Made in 1937 by the sculptor Ion Jalea, paid for by public subscription, the statuary group is composed of two elements: "The statue of Queen Elizabeth" and "The harp muse".

In the 50s, the communist regime decided to remove the statue and replace it with another work by the same artist: "Archer resting". In 1975, the piece "Muse with a harp" was exhibited in the center of Medgidia, while the statue of the queen remained in the basement of the Art Museum in Constanța. Following the rehabilitations in 2013, the statuary group finds its place on the seafront of the casino.

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.
