Panorama by the Romashka Tower in the Centru sector of Chișinău, Moldova. The tower is known for it's unusual architecture, designed by Oleg Vronsky. Construction of the project started in 1978, but stopped soon after. Originally designed as hotel / leisure facilities, the project was completed in 1984 with a change in use to housing.
The building's name, 'Romashka' («Ромашка»), means a camomile flower. It is also known as 'Stone Flower' ('Floare de Piatra') and 'Corn Cob' («кукурузный початок») as it resembles a camomile flower or a corn cob in some aspects.
The nearby soviet era playground is abandoned, but a new one has been built on the land just to the south of the building. The area in front of the building is used for parking. The adjoining road to the south-west is blocked off. The building has 22 floors, plus an additional section on top, which offers excellent views over the local area.
