Chisinau

Category: Motorcycle Diary Last Updated: Monday, 30 January 2017 Print Email

City: Chisinau

Country: Republic of Moldova

Chisinau is the city where traditions shake hands with modern thinking, wine is good and girls are pretty.

 

I got there because of: Death Morroz metal concert. It took place on the 2nd and 3rd day of Christmas. Death Morroz comes from Ded Moroz whom, according to Wikipedia, "is a Slavic fictional character similar to that of Father Christmas. The literal translation is "Old man Frost," often translated as "Grandfather Frost."". It was a cool concert where I got to meet nice people.

On the first day there we ate at "La Placinte" which means "At Pies". It was recommended to us by a bunch of friends. Here you can have traditional food with all kinds of wines. The design and music are also traditional. It is a nice and cool place to eat. I also recommend it. Prices, like everywhere, are a little lower than in Romania.

If nights were filled with heavy rock music, we used days to see the city. A lot of old beautiful buildings mixed from time to time with new design buildings. Streets are wide and trees are everywhere. It's like you are in a park that has buildings in it. I only got to see the centre of Chisinau, did not have the time or availability to walk to suburbs.

Also during day I visited some museums. I saw The National Museum of Fine Arts - lots of paintings are from anonymous painters but they are still beautiful and some of them made me laugh. Museum of Natural History and Ethnography - it is a cool museum where you can see a complete skeleton of supergiant dinothere (Deinoterium gigantissimus) that lived on our planet about 7 million years ago. And the last one The National Museum of Archaeology and History. This museum impressed me the most. It has a large room where a battle ground is reconstructed. Also battle sounds are played. It made me feel like I was in the middle of a battle in The Second World War. It took me some time to get back to Earth after that.

Overall it is a nice city to be in for a few days. I know that there are a lot of things that I missed but there is always tomorrow. Maybe next time I'll visit it in the summer.
