With a population of around half a million residents, Chisinau is Moldova's most economically prosperous city. Home to many large companies, including television networks, radio stations, and major newspapers, it also boasts the Cinema Patria, modern shopping malls (such as Malldova and Megapolis), a number of quality retailers, and many local bazaars. There are several amusement parks, too. Chisinau has a continental climate, with hot, dry summers and cooler winters. Dating from the 15th century, when it was a monastery village, today's city still retains many historic buildings, mixed with modern architecture, such as the Sky Tower and the headquarters of power company Union Fenosa.
