Around Chisinau by the car

I know you all are waiting for new photos from me =) I've travelled around the capital of Moldova, Chisinau. I took many photos. We decided to go for a trip around the city by the car. Here's the car I've travelled with.

First of all Olesea showed me local airport. We both guess Michele is happy to see it =) In my back you see airport and the monument near it - plane which is going to fly.

Here you see the whole plane. Do you like it? This monument is the one of new monuments. It appeared here just few years ago.

Chisinau airport is situated beyond the city. So, we had to go back to Chisinau after we saw it. In my back you see city gates. They are still far away from us. They welcome every visitor.

Here you see one part of city gates and cars which go to the city.

We are closer to the city...

We almost enterd it!!!

Here we decided to take many photos and just show you some views. Not every building on these photos is historical or really important. Here you see houses people live in.

This photo is showing the one of the roads in Chisinau.

In my back you see houses and also there's a picture of Moldovan National Emblem.

This photo shows hotel called Cosmos. This hotel was built in the times of Soviet Union.

On this photo you see Railway station. It's the only railway station in Chisinau. All the trains coming to Chisinau come to this place. Both local and international.

Here you see Moldtelecom building. Thanks to Moldtelecom there work all telephones in Moldova :)

This is theatre called in honour of M.Eminescu. M.Eminescu is great Moldavian poet. His masterpiece is called "Luceafarul".

Here you see Science Academy. It's place where all moldavian scientists work.

This is old building in the city center. At the moment there's shop.

On the left side you see new building. There will be offices.

This is church.

Again that church.

Another church

This building is called Primaria. Here work Chisinau powers

This is the main square in the Republic. You see Tree in the middle of it. That will be the main Christmas tree of Moldova this year.

This is National Palace. Here many concerts take place.

In my back you see monument. It's the greatest ruler in the whole history of Moldova. He is on also depicted on money. And the main street in Chisinau is called in his honour.

This is old building. In 19th century there was something like school for boys. Nowadays there's Museum of History of Moldova.

This is Opera theatre.

This is "Bucuria" - the biggest sweet producer in Moldova. "Bucuria" - that's Romanian word which means "happines". So those weets should bring happiness to people.

"Bucuria" New Year adverticement.

And this is troleybus. It's usual transport in Chisinau.
