Parcul Catedralei Mar 16, 2016
The main sight (some might say the only sight) in Chisinau is the park that surrounds the city's grand white Orthodox Cathedral. Between the cathedral and its bell tower is a cobbled square where kids chase pigeons, teenagers cruise around on bikes, and office workers come to eat their lunch in nice weather. The cathedral isn't huge, and isn't the most beautiful building I've ever been inside, but worth a look inside if you can get past the old ladies aggressively begging on the steps.

Where the park meets the main road, Bulevardul Stefan cel Mare, you'll find Moldova's answer to Paris' Arc de Triomphe, a smaller version named Arcul de Triumf with a few Moldovan flags fluttering in the arch.

Around the edges of the park are several food vans serving coffee and placinte, a sort of pie filled with cheese, cabbage or meat.
