A Fascinating City

...under reconstruction...

Well, in the city itself you always find lots of construction/reconstruction going on. And it is amazing to observe, how surprisingly fast often things proceed, while at other places things must have come to a halt quite some time ago already.

...And after my page has stayed sort of frozen for some time, I now hope to proceed with reconstructions ... hopefully before my next trip there. ;-)

<font size=+1><b>Chisinau is a really beautiful and interesting city.</font></b>

Within a short walk you will find the most different views; from broad streets, alleys with park like green areas in the middle from one end to the other, to small tree lined lanes, which you would exspect rather in a small country town.

Also the buildings are most diverse. Some governmental and administrational buildings are in a pleasant modern style, others are in the old (19th century) style.

Also in the living quarters you will find all sorts of different buildings; from newly constructed ones (high and small), to the typical soviet style quarters, to buildings from early 20th century, to even small, almost rural houses.

You may walk just a few blocks down the road, and you will find yourself in a completely different surrounding, almost in a different time.

    The Lonely Planet travel guide proved indispensable in my car trip to Romania. I would have LOVED to go on to Moldava and Chisinau, but no time. Got the spine still smarting though :)
