A Visit to Chisinau

After I read Eric Weiner's "The Geography of Bliss" I knew I had to include a visit to Moldova, the least happy country in the world, in my summer holiday. So after soaking up the sun on the Turkish Coast I flew from Antalya to Istanbul and on to Chisinau... a city that was at once totally unpredictable and exactly what I'd expected.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Amazing vegetarian food, dirt-cheap shopping, the fear factor.
  • Cons:(Unsurprisingly) little developed tourism infracstructure.
  • In a nutshell:Go, just so you can say you did.
  • Last visit to Chisinau: Jul 2010
