One day in Chisinau

Moldova is a little bit bigger than Catalonia, but population is around 1/2 of it (3,6M, including Transdniestr).

Almost 700.000 Moldovans live in Chisinau, so it’s quite a bit city. 2nd World War and an earthquake in 1940 let the city almost destroyed, so what we could find now is basically Soviet style (=ugly) buildings from the 50’s. Nevertheless, it’s quite a green city with big parks and quite a quiet city as well. We could see some bikes, even some father with some child also cycling, so that’s a good indicator. But once more we did not cycle in Chisinau 🙁

We had lunch in a very nice place called Propaganda, with a Dali painted outside. And found 2 geocachings 🙂

We saw some recycle collecting system, so good for Chisinau!

Many young people and Chisinau in general using the parks (but not the bar terraces at the parks…)

And we also saw poverty next to very expensive cars. I really don’t understand how some Moldovan people can buy and show their cars when most of the people (many of them very old) are very poor… I just could not live this way.
