Geography and Climate: The Republic of Moldova lies in the central part of Europe in the north-eastern Balkans, with a population of about 2.6 million, being one of the poorest countries on the continent. The capital of Moldova is Chisinau. On the North, East and South Moldova is surrounded by Ukraine, and on the West it is separated from Romania by the Prut River. As a small country, most destinations within the Republic of Moldova can be reached in a day drive.
The climate of the Republic of Moldova is moderately continental. It is characterized by a lengthy frost-free period, short mild winters, lengthy hot summers, modest precipitation, and long dry periods in the south. At the landscape level, the territory of the country is situated within three natural zones – forest, forest-steppe and steppe. The largest forest tracts represented by the forest reservations Codrii Moldovei and Plaiul Fagului are located in the center of the country. Culture: The culture of the Republic of Moldova represents a large gamut of cultural activities: literature, theatre, music, fine arts, architecture, cinematography, broadcasting and television, photographic art, design, circus, folk art, archives and libraries, books editing, scientific research, cultural tourism and so on. Religion: The primary religion is Christianity, over 90 percent of the population nominally being Eastern Orthodox. Adherents of other faiths include Roman Catholic, Protestantism/Neo-Protestantism, Judaism, Islamism, Hinduism etc.
Administrative-territorial organization: the Republic of Moldova is divided into 32 districts, 5 municipalities, 2 regions with special status (Autonomous Territorial Unit Gagauzia, Territorial administrative units from the left part of Nistru river, generically known as Transnistria region). Transnistria region is a part of the Republic of Moldova, but it is not controlled by the constitutional government. Public transportation: In addition to the private taxi services, the state runs a reliable and cost-effective public transport system. Safety and security: The crime rate is low, but there have been cases of theft. Walking alone during daylight hours is permitted, but you may want to be more careful at night. As Moldova is neighboring Ukraine, a country at war with the Russian Federation, there are regional security risks. It is therefore important to remain updated on the conflict situation. Thus, security advice is sent systematically by UNDSS.
