MOLDOVA
#1
Since we have here some members who haven't even heard of Moldova I decided to open this topic for describing this country, if anybody knows more things, please join us:

The Republic of Moldova (known also as Bessarabia, lately Moldavia) has a population of 3,383,332, which makes it the most densely populated of all countries in the former USSR area. About 78% of the people are Moldovans or Romanians. Large minority groups include Ukrainians (8.4%), Russians (5.1%) and Turks, Jews and Bulgarians (7.3%).

Chisinau is the capital of the Republic of Moldova. Moldova is the second smallest of the former Soviet states with 33,700km2. Chisinau is a city of 800,000 people which is surrounded by rural agricultural lands. Chisinau straddles the Bik River, a tributary of the Nistru River.

Moldova is in the Eastern European Time Zone (GMT+3 hours). When it is noon in Chisinau it is: 11:00 in Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam, 10:00 in London, 07:00 in New York, 19:00 in Sydney and 13:00 in Moscow. Summertime (GMT+3 hours) is in effect from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October.
Moldova is a hilly plain. The country's average elevation is 147 m (about 482.3 ft) above sea level, with a maximum height of 429.5 m (about 1410 ft).

The climate is continental, with some modification of conditions by the Black Sea. Winters are mild, with average daily temperatures in January between -4 to -7 C ( about 23 to 27 F). Summers are quite warm, with average daily temperatures in July generally exceeding 25 C (68 F) and daily highs reaching 40 C (104 F) on occasion.

I have once been in Moldova, but only transiting it when going to Ukraine. It has a special nature, but the roads are awful!

Moldova also practices "wine-therapy". It's one of the latest discoveries in the world that can help treat many diseases.
If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

Moldova has the world's greatest wine-cellar - 5 million bottles (registered in Guiness Book). You can find there any wine you like.

Anyway I don't like his songs.
Moldova can be considered a good place for those who like exotics. No, local people can't understand they live "exotically" but when Americans visit it, they consider it unusual.

Is it true that Moldova is the only country in Europe that is governed by communists party? I read that recently in the internet. It should be even worse there than in Belarus... :-(

Common, it can’t be that bad. It is situated in Europe, bordered by a European country (Romania).
Then how come Vietnam is the worst country?

I didn't mean worst, but poor. Moldova is the poorest country in Europe, and that's a fact that talks for itself.

according to GDP, the World Bank estimates Moldova's at 850$ per capita. That's the lowest in Europe.

2,278-850= 1,428 Confusedhock:

what’s the point of a budget when the country's new credits are near the same amount?
Reply
#23
Hakan, there are two types of budget: deficit budget and surplus budget. I guess you are talking about a deficit budget, when expenses are higher than revenues.
Reply

Yes I was speaking regarding the deficit budget, is this correct?

that's nothing in comparison to the USA's external debts. It amounts to 3 trillion dollars Confusedhock: Confusedhock: Confusedhock:
