Noteworthy in Chisinau, Moldova

While not a thriving tourist destination yet, there are a few places that are “must see” if you visit this city in Moldova..

The number one, and by far the most well kept, site is the Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”..

Cathedra and Bell Tower

 

which is located, oddly enough, in the center of Cathedral Park… The original bell tower was demolished in the ’60’s but rebuilt in 1998..

The main train station is considered by many to be one of the prettier buildings in town.. The guards told us we couldn’t take picture inside..not sure why but, you know how security guards can be..
