Chisinau is the capital of Moldova situated in the center of the country, thus, pretty much every road lead to it. The city and even the whole country could be called a wine-and-food loving place. Even though, the city was founded in 1420 most of the capital was leveled during second World War and tragic earthquake before the war. What can be seen today was mostly build during Soviet period, therefore, you will find a lot of grandiose Stalinist architecture mixed with gloriously brutal modernism.
When we arrived, our host insisted that there is not much to see here and we could fit everything in one day. Well, we found out that he was absolutely right. If you are not spending many hours inside museums, you could investigate most of the historical buildings in one day – even if you are on foot. Thus, if you plan to visit Moldova – consider traveling through whole country and exploring its marvelous wine yards and nature rather than get stuck in this massive building jungle.
Best of luck planning your holidays in Chisinau!
