    When I was offered a posting in Chisinau, I was skeptical at first. But this expat community made settling in so much easier.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Chisinau

Hello to all Americans in Chisinau! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Chisinau? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Chisinau which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Chisinau is Moldova’s financial and business center. The Moldovan capital is a rather unassuming city known for its many parks, the Stalinist architecture and later Soviet-period buildings , and much more! With the bus, trolleybus, and rutieră (privately owned minibuses on fixed routes), navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Rascani or Botanica, for example, which are five to fifteen kilometers away from Chisinau’s center.

Although Chisinau has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Chisinau, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
