In Moldova



Our family moved to Chisinau, Moldova in December of 2011. So far we have been super happy here! This is my discoveries in Chisinau and outside the city in Moldova. I like taking pictures of the places I go and I like sharing them in the hopes of helping other expats see different parts of living in Moldova. Also, personally, this is a great way to appreciate where we live and think outside the ‘oh what am I gonna do here?!’ box.

  1. Hi! Just leaving a note to let you know I am following you for a bit, because my husband and I are moving from Manila to Chisinau in the coming weeks. I was there for a few days last year, so I have had a cursory glance at our new city, but it’s good to see it through the eyes of a longer time resident. I found you when I searched for snow in Moldova and got the link to your old blog URL and pretty snow photos. 🙂

    1. Hi there,

      Thank you for following my blog and stopping by. Chisinau is really a lovely sweet place! My family and I have been really enjoying it. And many people we know enjoy it as well. Feel free to contact me again when you are in Chisinau!


  2. Hi!
    We met some weeks ago at lunch in this little french restaurant and we talked about your blog. Now I moved to Chisinau and maybe we could meet!
    Best regards,

  3. Hello there
    First of all thank you for blogging its really very helpful to come across your blog. I am considering moving to Moldova and i would really appreciate some information I am mainly concerned about the cost of living there for a couple. maybe you can help?. thanks

    1. Hi there, i’m happy you stopped by!

      We have been enjoying life in Chisinau. The price for living is something to consider for sure. Prices of apartments and/or houses as of now (Fall 2013) is about $700-1500 a month w/out gas/electric/water costs for an apartment in the center. Yah, it’s spendy! Outside of Chisinau, you can live in Telecentru for houses ranging from $1500-3500, same prices for Buiucani area. I would recommend you to look into places in the center as you can walk to stores and restaurants and parks pretty easily. We lived in the center our first year and I really enjoyed it. Food is not too expensive here but going to restaurants can be expensive at times, but not all the times. There are many shops where you can find foreign produce which is very nice. There are also outdoor markets where you can buy pretty much everything for a better price.
      If you would like to contact me for more information, please ‘like’ this blog. You can see the button for Facebook on the right side of the main page. From there, you can send me a message and I would love to answer any other questions you have! Cheers, T.

  4. Hi! I am a student doing a research project on everyday life in Chisinau, Moldova. I think your blog is wonderful and I love reading about the beautiful parks, cool restaurants, and festivals and holidays that you have celebrated. Thank you so much!

  5. Interesting read this blog, I just happen to find it.
    Have at least given me a few ideas about place to maybe go next I am in Chisinau.
    Though some of them might have changed by now of course.
    I like Chisinau but am maybe not the most adventurous when there, just walks with a friend or two and maybe going to some restaurant.

    All the best to you and yours.
