    • Day trip to Transistria

      by AidanM Online Now Sep 20, 2016 at 9:38 AM

      I will be with Irish football fans in Chisinau from Friday 7th October to Monday 10th October 2016. A number of us are hoping to visit Transistria on a day trip on Saturday 8th October.
      Could somebody advise the best way to arrange the trip.

      Many thanks

      English, German, Italian or Russian?

      by dlandt Online Now Apr 10, 2016 at 7:31 AM

      I will be in Chisinau this summer and am curious about local lingual preferences. I do know a few words of Romanian courtesy of a former girlfriend and living in a Balkan neighborhood, but not really enough to manage even simple transactions. Everyone speaks English everywhere of course, and I am fluent, so I know that is always an option, but I worry a bit about the tax on it and that speaking it can sometimes provoke animosity. German I speak well, but I am not sure if it is still widely understood and I have the same concerns about speaking German as English, possibly even stronger. Italian I am OK with but I (and most others) seldom speak it outside of Italy or within my own family. It is similar enough to Romanian that I raise it as a possibility because it allows me to read Romanian and sometimes get the gist of spoken speech. Russian is a language I only have the basics of, learned on the street and can use to get through simple transactions. My concerns are I don't speak it very well, and have found that it is only grudgingly used in other parts of the Balkans.

      Which would you use to open a conversation or perform a transaction?

      If staying in moldova for a few months, how much is the internet? Note that I wouldn't have phone access or television access, but in the United States, even if you dont have phone access, internet companies still come out and install internet for 20 dollars per month. Someone was telling me that internet in moldova is 50 USD per hour. Could this be correct? It seems a bit high.
