I hunted this place down because of a family connection and it was the most moving experience. The cemetery is overgrown yet still stunningly beautiful - though do prepare yourself for the signs of neglect that come with nature reclaiming the cemetery. We spent ages...More

I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, but this was for sure the biggest surprise in that department ever. Overgrown, rusted, not a soul around, invokes strong feelings of the meaning of passing time. Not a fun, but certainly an interesting thing to do

Let's be honest: there's not that much to see in central Chisinau. So if you're here for any length of time, you'll want to find other things to see. I walked out from the city center to the Jewish Cemetery in about 1 hour 20...More
