The Place Charles de Gaulle, or Piata Charles de Gaulle in Romanian, is a square in northern Bucharest, on the intersection of Aviatorilor and Prezan Constantin Avenues. As you walk through the gardens, you'll come to a lake. In the centre of the square is the Millennium Cross, a sculpture by Neagu, which was built in the 1990's. In 2006, a statue of General Charles de Gaulle, the work of Mircea Spataru, was unveiled. It stands nearly five feet tall. The square was originally named for Piata Jiano, a popular hero from the revolution. During World War II, it was renamed after Adolf Hitler, but after the end of the war the name changed again - first to Stalin, during the communist era, and finally it was given the name of Charles de Gaulle during the 90's.
