CHISINAU, MOLDOVA - Chisinau often has the reputation of being the most boring city in Europe - as always I like to go against the grain and prove that it isn't! Where is Moldova? It's a country (former Soviet Republic) between Ukraine and Romania - the official language is Romanian. Chisinau is a small city (formerly Kishinev prior to the break up of the Soviet Union) part of the region formerly known as Moldavia. It's full of cool Soviet Architecture! Check out the Triumphal Arch, Cathedrals, Parliament Building and many Orthadox churches, as well as typical plain and grey soviet buildings! And of course, do not forget Moldovan Wine!

don't know about the most boring city in the world, this skank is the most annoying TWAT in the world ! Stop trying to be funny, and injecting your annoying 'personality'. no one wants to see your ugly face,

Just checking my spam comments (you know, when bizarrely angry people leave abusive comments to alleviate their own self hatred and jealousy that go straight to my spam box and no one reads but me). I can imagine you sitting there right now, probably boiling with rage that no one likes you, you have no girlfriend and no prospects, so you just troll people's videos. You might think that abuse would have a negative effect on me, but it's laughable, or fucking laughable if I were to use your colourful language. My advice to you would be to question you attitude and life choices going forward x Thanks for making me laugh troll face xxx

Moldova should be part of Romania. They are literally the same people, they share the same language, ethnicity, religion, and they share a similar flag. Moldova would be better off being a part of Romania. I don't get why Moldovans don't want reunification, they were one country until the USSR came.

Austria and Germany also have similar roots, does not mean the people have the same MENTALITY, you can not be one sided here and force people to join you...

Lumeee, citiți atent titlul și priviți video până la capăt. Din cauza neatenției voastre și răutății, autorul chiar dacă are o părere pozitivă despre Moldova, își va schimba opinia din cauza oamenilor netoleranți, răutăcioși și care sar înaintea căruței. El cred că nici nu mai vrea sa vină în Moldova din cauza oamenilor căscați. Înțelegeți, vă rog corect, totuși este imaginea noastră ca țară și ca popor...mai ales că el a fost nici măcar ironic, doar a parafrazat. Haideți sa le demonstrăm că totuși suntem oameni faini, pentru că într-adevăr suntem. ^^

Moldovans are the most confused people in the world. They don't know who they are and what language they speak. When a nation faces this identity crisis, how can they unite and build a strong country? The communist propaganda and brainwashing was strong in this region. Moldovans have an unexplained hate for Romania but that doesn't stop them to eagerly apply for the Romanian citizenship and for maternity alimony and other benefits from the Romanian government. They eagerly apply for the romanian schools/universities and the free college housing. The hypocrisy level is insane. Moldovans are people with no pride, they let the government steal every dime from them, they are sheep and blindly follow everything. They never try to better themselves or the country, the living conditions. They encourage cheating in school exams, they pay their exams in universities. Corruption is at home there. All they do is work abroad, benefit from the foreign country economy WHILE criticizing that same country and claiming that Moldova is a better country. If you go to Moldova you can see the living conditions in the rural areas : horrible. Why? Because some corrupt party bought their votes with 2 kgs of sugar and flour. The only people who live well in Moldova are government families, who steal from the sheep, and corrupt people who own all kind of shady businesses, corrupt professors and doctors.

Suna frumos, insa e cam greu de obtinut un trai decent cand Romania si Rusia dezbina si divizeaza societate in diferite categorii, nu poti construi un stat functional in asemenea conditii, doar prin schimbarea radicala a relatiilor internationale putem obtine o viziune clara a viitorului acestui "stat", daca vom reusi sa formam din Moldova un punct important de tranzit international, atunci succesul e de partea noastra... o tara mica ca Moldova poate sa se inbogateasca instantaneu, daca ne uitam la Elvetia, Austria, Israel, Qatar sunt foarte multe exemple de urmat si pentru noi.
FreeSpaceChannel (3 months ago)
+Vanya004 Bine, asta deja suna a science fiction. Eu cred ca imbunatatirea nivelului de trai al populatiei se poate face si fara roboti si cloni, sau punti intre imperii. Daca noi ca stat suveran si independent nu suntem capabili sa oferim un salariu si o pensie satisfacatoare oamenilor, un trai cat de cat decent, atunci degeaba mai existam.
Vanya004 (3 months ago)
daca e sa vorbim de artificial, atunci intreaga economie globala e artificiala... intreaga sistema va trebui schimbata cand robotii vor inlocui tot mai multa forta de munca, atunci treptat va trebui aprobata o economie bazata pe resurse, cu totii stim ca Rusia e bogata in resurse (aprox. 30% din intreaga lume) alaturi de China, (care apropo incearca sa cumpere intregul continent african) care de asemenea e foarte bogat in resurse, noi ne aflam la mijloc intre doua puteri imperiale, trebuie sa jucam acest joc "ba cu estul, ba cu vestul" pana cand se va determina invingatorul... sau Moldova va deveni o punte, un hub international de business, atunci se va moderniza intr-un ritm foarte rapid, trebuie sa ne uitam la intreaga imagine...

+Vanya004Vanya, te rog frumos, amageste-te cat vrei, dar realitatea tot asta ramane. Moldova se duce de rapa, cu sau fara criminalitate. Cum adica nu exista criminalitate cand toti hotii si coruptii conduc tara, iar toti moldovenii tac si accepta ca niste oi. Ce s-a facut cand s-a furat miliardul? Nimic, moldovenii sunt oameni pasnici si "lasa, mai rau sa nu fie". Fa o vizita prin sate, sa vezu cum traiesc pensionarii cu 500 de lei, fara apa sau veceu, fara incalzire in case, taie lemne si fac focul la 70 de ani. De aia si sunt pasnici, pt ca li se da 1 kg de zahar si voteaza, de foame si saracie. Nu e cazul sa ne mandrim acum, ci sa actionam, sa schimbam viata pt oameni macar putin, pt batraneii nostri de prin sate. Nu compara Vestul cu Moldova, pt ca jumatate de Moldova aduce bani in tara din Vestul cela pe care tu il critici fara rusine. Moldova e o tara parazita, chiar nu intelegi? Noi lucram prin alte tari si trimitem toti banii in Moldova, ca sa sustinem aceasta economie artificiala. Ce traditii avem noi? Craciun si Anul nou de doua ori pe an? Betie pana la coma? Si suntem noi vinovati, pentru ca nu stim sa gandim/analizam/votam! Noi ne mandrim cu valori imaginare, iar restul fura si vand tara in ziua mare, stii vorba aia : "casa arde, dar baba se piaptana". Dar asa e la noi, fudulie goala, tipic moldovenesc.
Vanya004 (3 months ago)
Bunch of nonsense, at least they're welcoming and hospitable, the crime rate is much lower than in US for example, just because they are calm/peaceful doesn't mean they are "sheep"... if that's so, then today's system has failed big time, we should teach humans how to be human again, where is the so called humanity traits in the "civilized world" the compassion, respect, tradition, hospitality, mystery... all of this is gone in the west, only greed and materialism is thriving over there, a bunch of wage slaves to big corporations, now that's pathetic.

The Tao of David (4 months ago)

Oh, wow, that's crazy. So anyway how do you remove audio after you already uploaded the video? How did you do the post edit?
The Tao of David (4 months ago)
+Moz i've used the same song throughout a video with bursts of 29 seconds each, but it's not an official 'fair use policy', with some music ive had a copyright claim for 1 second!

Oh, that's good to know. So does that mean I can use a mix of copyrighted music of not more than 29 seconds long each?

Thank you for coming to our country! I hope you had a nice stay. I see so many uneducated people , from my country, in the comments section, it honestly makes me cringe. Please do not pay much attention to them! And yes, Romanian is our official language, all the russian speakers came here during the soviet union and now act as if we were part of Russia all along. If y'all love speaking russian so much, why don't you go to Russia? And for those who claim we speak moldovian, y'all just dumb peasants from a shithole village (probably Orhei) .

Patricia Ungurean ____Yah he should have visited Orheiul Vechi its very pretty and im from Moldova too.
The Tao of David (6 months ago)
what's rude? I never said Moldova was boring. The video is extremely positive. Read the title again, there's a question mark, ie I'm disproving the common opinion that Moldova is boring when it isn't. Do you not have indirect speech and irony where you're from? lol
Ianis Birliba (7 months ago)
Boring is is a term that's very relative to each individual, if you live in bigger cities in western Europe or anywhere else around the world and you come to Chisinau, then I will agree with you it is boring. There are a few things to do in town but as someone that grew up and lived in Chisinau you really don't need more than 3 to 5 days and 5 days is still a lot in City

Reghina Dirtu (6 months ago)
Its not boring....and you Romanian snob you only care about what Romanians have to give. Moldova and Romania are pretty much the same. What happened with it when Moldova became its own country happened a long time ago so GET OVER IT! And stop saying this is Romanian land because clearly the name of the country is MOLDOVA

I'm a Brit who lived in Chisinau for 3 years. It's not the most interesting capital city in Europe, but it's a long way from being the worst. While i don't miss the city that much, I do miss the people that I met and the friends that I made. Tara minunilor!
TonyTonyG (7 months ago)
Robert, I don't know if you would be interested, but I keep my own travel blog, and I have just started writing about my time in Moldova there, including being illegal and how I escaped the country several times. https://megliovivere.com/2018/06/06/2016-as-an-illegal-immigrant/ . To the guy who posted this video. I hope it's okay for me to put this link here. If not, let me know and I can remove it and send it in a PM instead.
Robert ! (8 months ago)
TonyTonyG All that would happen is if you overstayed if your EU or US citizen is a fine of a few hundred dollars and you would have a few days to leave you couldn't return for 6 months. No a big deal!Anyway,all you do is go and get a new fresh passport they wouldn't know.I have known a few people who have done this.I don't know if they have updated there computers and information sharing but 10 years ago information from different departments in Moldova was not good.
Robert ! (8 months ago)
TonyTonyG Also Ukraine is now very intolerant of Transnistia because of a pro Western governments coming to power and the fighting in Eastern Ukraine,not forgetting the annexation of Crimea.So when i was first there Ukraine didn't really care who was who but now they may send you back if they inspect passports property and see no Moldovan exit stamp.
Robert ! (8 months ago)
TonyTonyG The only problem with using Transnistia to get round over staying is you have to get an exit stamp first then go back into Moldova if you want stay longer than 90 days:)Then leave through Transnistia.If you over stay and go out through Transnistia without Moldovan exit stamp,you may be refused entry to Moldova by land and air through official immigration points for up to 5 years.
Robert ! (8 months ago)
TonyTonyG Well i understand what you mean about using Transnistia as a way round over staying your visa:)Is useful.I registered a company there and as long as you pay certain fees and taxes you will be issued with a green little plastic resident card every 12 months.So you can enter and exit stay as long as like as long as you renew it in time.I had a good lawyer with good contacts so anything was possible,if you see what i mean:) You don't have to trade after you register a company just make the right payments:)If you marry a Moldovan it's even easier.All is needed is a certificate from your country saying your not legally married and a criminal record report.Minor offences are ok. Then you will receive a larger yellow plastic permanent resistance card. As for Transnistia,yes has been described as an open air museum to the former Soviet Union.Not as bad as 10 years ago but still has some of that feeling about it.Strange thing is Transnistia is half of Moldova economy.I personally liked being in Transnistia and there is things to do eating out and good night live in Tiraspol.

First World Traveller Well, I got what you mean. But if you could, please get me as well: I searched the capital of my country and the top video on YouTube is yours. Kind of expected a really informative video about the country which would intrigue most of the people curious about it. But your situation is understandable. Well, hoped you liked it even if you stayed so little.

The Tao of David (11 months ago)
I am going to explain this ONE LAST TIME after responding to MANY abusive and unintelligent comments from people who haven't even watched the video. The title is Chisinau - the most boring city in Europe? EMPHASIS ON THE QUESTION MARK. Many people 'believe' that it is in fact boring. HOWEVER, you will see from watching the first 20 seconds of the video that it is clearly not, and my opinion of Chisinau was completely positive. So, before you feel the need to write a poorly spelt, abusive comment, I suggest you engage your brain and actually watch the video first. Thankyou

Diana (1 year ago)
Moldavia is the English word for the North-eastern region of Romania, so probably that's why you've heard it before. In Romanian, we call that region "Moldova", like the country. It can be confusing for foreigners so that's why there is a different translation in English for the region. :)

Moldova has on the the largest wineries in the world. Did you know that? You are so poor mannered and educated that you make yourself look like a fool. The way you speak and how you behave yourself speaks very poor of you and your country. And the funny part is that you have no problem to show the entire world how stupid you are, but probably that's what they teach you where you are coming from.

Anna Russu another keyboard warrior. This channel is called FirstWorldTraveller. It is suppose to be sarcastic, cocky but still informative and I do not see David failing in any of mentioned points. For people that do not take them self too seriously it is informative and hilarious watching that I personally always enjoy. I would recommend seing some of his other videos. He is great at what he does. #teamdavid
The Tao of David (1 year ago)
Anna Russu And just to clarify, I'm not young, I'm 35! I am highly offended that you think I do not respect other countries as this is my number 1 priority when travelling. Perhaps you should check out my other 140odd videos? The tagline on my channel banner is "The Traveller That Tells The Truth". Which I do. I am not a YouTuber that sugarcoats every destination and I give an honest overview of the short time I am in that country, which obviously I will never be an expert on. I will also not sit back and take abuse from ignorant people such as yourself. I'm still waiting for your examples of when I described Chisinau in a negative manner??
The Tao of David (1 year ago)
Anna Russu hi again Anna, could you clarify when exactly in this video I spoke ill of Moldova???? Perhaps you misunderstand as I was clearly very positive about Chisinau. If you are referring to the title re 'boring city', I used this as the title as many people online refer to Chisinau as the most boring city in Europe. I think it's pretty clear in this video I am implying that it is infact NOT the most boring city in Europe. For example, I deliberately showed the car section at the start as it was something 'exciting' that a viewer wouldn't expect in a video with boring in the title. It's called irony! I'm watching as I write this, I am very complimentary about churches (which I saw many of in Ukraine), the architecture (I enjoy architecture in this area of the world), and I talk about Moldovan wine which I absolutely LOVED. The irony of this video is that viewers may think it's boring, BUT I LOVED IT! And I want to go back! I've just finished rewatching and I cannot locate any points where I was derogatory towards Chisinau or used inappropriate language. You have to understand I am from London with a typical London accent and way of talking. To foreigners this can often seem coarse, aggressive and language used can often seem inappropriate. The bloopers at the end are called humour!! I look forward to your examples and hope you understand the message behind this video a little clearer.
Florin Niculescu (1 year ago)
The language is Romanian, simply because in the past, current Republic of Moldova was part of Romania. During soviet/ comunist era, you would have seen chirilic writing and hear Russian. As there are quite a few natuve Russian speakers, you can still hear it nowadays. Hope that helps.

" Fall " is the " right " word by the way ( though both are in use ) "autumn " is a French affectation ..popular in Regency England. The Americans stick to original English.
NickBeef1963 (10 months ago)

Beppe Sapone regardless, you would never hear an English person like me say fall

Beppe Sapone interesting stuff
Beppe Sapone (1 year ago)
“fall” for autumn was formerly used in Britain and then largely abandoned. The OED shows 19th century usage by Sir Walter Scott and Thomas Carlyle, for example. Are they British enough for you ?
The Tao of David (1 year ago)
Beppe Sapone lol 'fall' never has or never will be used by British English speakers. A bit like 'grilled cheese sandwich'. It's a toastie

+bae yuri you're telling me about it. it looks like she was completely brainwashed bu USSR. USSR has done so much damage to moldovians. theu took our country, they took moldovians and sent them to concentration camps in siberia. spending weeks with hundreds of other people in one wagon being fed with scrumbie without being given any water. they sent russians to moldova and gave them houses and jobs while moldovians couldnt even get a piece of bread. Whenever moldovians would send food and fruiys to russia so the could gain a bit of money, the russians would throw everything and step on it.its just horrible to think what russia has done to us. moldova is a VERY beautiful country but communism has completely destroyed it. I think all the people that say USSR and russia arr great, should inform themselvees and its a shame that they would say something like that. btw ( i like your profile picture my fellow k-popper) Românā:mie îmi spui. se pare că URSS-ul a stricat-o la cap. URSS a făcut atât de mult rău moldovenilor. Ei a luat țara noastră, au luat moldoveni și i-au trimis la lagărele de concentrare din Siberia. au petrecut săptămâni cu sute de alți oameni într-un vagon fiind hrăniți cu scrumbie fără a li se da apă. au trimis ruși în moldova și i-au dat case și locuri de muncă, în timp ce moldovenii nu puteau obține nici măcar o bucată de pâine. Ori de câte ori moldovienii trimiteteau mâncare și fructe la rusia, astfel încât să poată câștiga un pic de bani, rușii ar arunca totul și le-ar fi cālcat în picioare. E oribil sa vezi ce au fācut URSS-ul din noi. moldova este o țară foarte frumoasă, dar comunismul a distrus-o complet. Cred că toți oamenii care spun că URSS și Rusia sunt Incredibili, ar trebui să se informeze singuri și este rușinos să spună ceva de genul asta. cu Dodon la putere, sa prostit cu totul lacap tara asta.

Dark cloud500 it’s interesting how you call us. Let me remind you several things: 1) Your territory was taken by force by USSR. 2) USSR emphasized the difference between Moldovan’s and Romanians. 3) you study for free in Romania, I wonder why? 4) You make big queues at our embassies to take the Romanian passports, for the purpose of free passage and work in EU. Judging by the way you talk your are Russian which cannot prove his “Romanian” heritage, therefore cannot enjoy the benefits of being of EU citizen, therefore you will rather mock us because is more convenient.

Soo glad that enjoyed Moldova! Love the positive vibe you spread! hope you visit again and explore the biggest wine celler in the world and the second biggest (both in MD). We speak Russian and Moldovain, Romanians say we speak Romanian but this is simply false. Most Moldovain hate Romania because of ww2 as we fought with the red army and the Romanians with the Nazis (MD-1 Rom-0😂) the also try to say that OUR famous rulers (stefan the great), poets ( Ion Creaga) were Romanian. But we hate them mostly for their personalities, two faced, stingy, ect.
