Exploring Chisinau's History on Foot.


Chisinau is a city with a long and changing history. Its geographic location in the midst of powerful nations has frequently changed the culture depending on which nation was ruling here. Today, Chisinau is the capital of a former Soviet Rpublic but still retains some segments of its past history. This creates Chisinau's unique personality we see, today.

The tour points out the changes one sees in building design, street names, the impact of Chisinau's famous citizens and significant changes in religious buildings and the relious culture. The hitorical military and political battles that shaped the city will also be discussed. Many of which, still have an impact on Moldova and Chisinau, today.
