More about Moldova

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Moldova, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Moldova borders Ukraine to the north, east and south and Romania to the west. The national territory corresponds to the largest part of the former Bessarabia, reaches the Danube in the extreme south (at the mouth of the Pruth) and is mainly occupied by the eastern Vltava hill country between Prut and Dniester.

This is a gently undulating, hilly landscape, sloping to the south and divided by numerous watercourses and small erosion gorges (Owragi), which consists mainly of sediments. Higher elevations are the North Moldavian hill country in the north (up to 320 m above sea level), the Ciucului hills (up to 388 m above sea level) and the limestone-interspersed Dniester hills between Răut and Dniester in the northeast (up to 347 m above sea level)) as well as the Central Moldovan hill country (Kodren) with the Bălăneşti (the highest point in Moldova) rising to 429 m above sea level. In contrast, the South Moldavian plain with the Bugeac lowlands and the plain on the lower Dniester are below 200 m above sea level. To the left of the Dniester in the Dniester region extends the Podolian hill country (up to 275 m above sea level) as part of the Volyn-Podolian plate. Moldova is one of the earthquake prone areas.

The largest rivers are the Dniester, which is navigable in the middle and lower reaches, and the Prut, which is navigable in the lower reaches. Both have their source in the Carpathian Mountains and drain to the Black Sea. The Dniester, in particular, is exposed to severe interference due to the withdrawal of water for irrigation purposes. The largest lakes were created by dams: Costeştistausee on the Pruth (area 92 km 2) and Dubăsari (67.5 km 2) and Cuciurgan reservoir (28 km 2) on the Dniester.

Population

The population is made up of Romanians, here called Moldovans (75%), Ukrainians (8%), Russians (6%) and Gagauz (4%). Other minorities are Bulgarians, Roma, Armenians, Tatars and members of other nationalities. In the Dniester region, the Russians, together with the Ukrainians, form a majority, outside the Dniester region Moldovans make up over 80% of the population. While the Moldovans mainly settle in rural areas, the Russians live almost exclusively in cities. In the area to the right of the Dniester (Bessarabia) the Bulgarians and Gagauz settle mainly in the south, the Ukrainians in the north. In the course of the independence movement in 1989 it was decided to reintroduce Romanian (officially known as Moldavian from 1994) in Latin as the state language. The Cyrillic spelling was retained in the Dniester Republic. Russian is very common and is actively used by a large part of the population.

The population density of Moldova is (2017) 124 residents per km 2. At 45%, the degree of urbanization is relatively low on a European scale. The biggest cities are Chişinău, Tiraspol, Bălţi and Tighina. Around 900,000 Moldovans live and work abroad, at least temporarily.

Bălți 97 900
Tighina (Bender) 91 900

Religion

The constitution (Article 30) guarantees freedom of religion. The religion law passed in 1992 (with amendments in 1999) forms the basis of the state’s religious policy. It imposes the obligation to state registration on the religious communities and permits religious activity that can claim the protection of the constitution only in the state-registered communities. The Orthodox Church occupies a prominent position in public life, to which, according to the latest available surveys, around 94% of the population belong. On October 5, 1992, the Orthodox Church in Moldova obtained from the Moscow Patriarchate, to which it had been subordinated as an eparchy (diocese) of Kishinev and Moldova after the incorporation of Bessarabia into the USSR (1940) – forcibly separated from the Romanian church organization, autonomy in matters of internal administration. It includes around 85% of the population. On December 20, 1992, the Romanian Patriarchate reestablished the Metropolitan Region of Bessarabia. It has about 9% of the population. The small number of Old Believers belongs to the Russian Orthodox Church of the Old Rite (Popowzy). For the Catholic Christians (around 0.6% of the population, predominantly Polish nationality), the exemte diocese of Chişinău has existed since 2001. The (post-) Reformation congregations and groups (Pentecostals, Baptists, and Adventists) that emerged after 1990 together have an estimated population of 2.2 to 2.5%. Check justinshoes to see Travel Destinations in Moldova.

The Jewish community, whose historical roots go back to the 15th century in the historical landscape of Bessarabia, today comprises around 15,000 Jews (less than 0.5%; 1979: around 80,000; synagogues in Chişinău and Teleneshty). The Muslim minority is v. a. represented by the Tatars who settled in Moldova during the Soviet era.
