Chisinau - Republic of Moldova
Let’s take a stroll in another beautiful city, Chisinau!
Not only does Moldova’s capital city take pride in its expansive green spaces, including more than 23 lakes and numerous large parks, but Chisinau is also filled with interesting things to see like its museums, churches, outdoor markets, historical monuments, theatres and much more.
A short travel guide!
- Bernardazzi Architecture
Chisinau is a city in transition, with new and old buildings side by side. However, the city abounds in architectural masterpieces, many of which were designed by the famous Russian architect Alexandru Bernardazzi.
- A green city
Chisinau is a green city, with lots of trees along its streets and boulevards that are particularly beautiful in spring and summer. Although May is the perfect month for a walk under the scent of blooming acacia, the parks of Stefan cel Mare, Valea Morilor and Valea Trandafirilor are also great options for autumn walks.
- Outdoor markets and bazaars
Chisinau Central Market is the largest open-air market in the city. It is a crowded, colorful, must-visit bazaar, where in winter the visitor finds all kinds of food for sale, as well as souvenirs, clothes, shoes, accessories etc. There are also the Crafts market featuring the works of all kinds of Moldovan craftspeople, and the Flea market for vintage lovers.
Explore the Chisinau to Palanca cycling route which follows country roads and paths away from the national highways, providing a quiet and safe cycling environment that gives travelers the chance to enjoy the landscapes of Moldova and admire many picturesque places along the way.
Enjoy your visit!
