Jewish Bessarabia Private Tour


I never had a Chisinau City Tour without including places related to the history of the local Jewish community.
Not because I necessarily want, but because it is inevitable.
Without the Jewish period, Moldovan history looks incomplete and poor.

Another reality tells us, that at the beginning of the XX century, Bessarabia had the biggest Jewish settlement in all Russian Empire and at least half of the population of Chisinau were Jews. So many events happened, so many generations had passed since that time, so many thousands of Jews left Moldova forever and today very few left from once, big community.

Although I am not a specialist in Jewish history, my knowledge of the subject has allowed me to successfully help some foreign families in the past to find Jewish traces in Moldova - This is why I propose you this tour.

Notice: This is the Chisinau City Tour about Jewish places and history. If you want to visit a specific town or you want to try to find out something about your family - let me know.
