When talking about Revolution Square back in May, I mentioned that prior to 1948 the square also hosted an equestrian statue of King Carol I of Romania. The statue was created in 1939 by the sculptor Ivan Meštrović and destroyed by the communists when they took power in 1948. In 2005 the City Hall decided to recreate the statue and sculptor Florin Codre was assigned to do the work. As of December 6th the king is officially back, mounted on his horse on his old spot in front of the Central University Library.
