Tourism in Chisinau
Chisinau (Chişinău) is very prosperous in comparison to the rest of the nation, since Moldova is a poor country. As is normal in developing nations, there are likely to be significant wealth discrepancies. It’s also very much a post-Soviet metropolis, having both positive and negative aspects. On the opposite side, there are numerous contemporary and beautiful structures made of steel, concrete, and glass.
The bulk of the middle and working classes reside in apartment buildings. These seem to be typical, maybe not very pleasant, but not “hazardous,” as comparable locations in Western Europe may be perceived to be. Do not anticipate Western standards everywhere in Moldova, however the situation is improving year by year. There are 4 and 5 star hotels here, as well as excellent restaurants and cafés, coffee shops, and pubs. Many restaurants and practically all of the city’s hotels accept credit cards. Throughout the city, there are hundreds of ATMs where you may use your bank card.
Although the customary measures are taken, crime is quite low.
