In the Republic of Moldova leus are used for making buyings. In the shops US dollars and euros are not taken. However there are many places you may exchange money in. The ATMs are widely spread. However the interest is taken for cashing if the ATM and a card are from different banks. Some shops take cards but the majority don't. So, you should always have cash if you go shopping or if you just go somewhere. In public transport they take just cash.


In the majority of bars and restaurants tips are not included into the bill. If they are included that's always written. When the tips are not included you may leave some money to waiter. There's no fixed share. However usually people leave not more than 5 percent. Less share is also possible. You may give tips just in case if you liked the work of waiter. Otherwise you shouldn't give any tips. Remember that's not obligatory to give tips in Moldova.


The official language of Moldova is Romanian which is refered to as Moldovan. However both Romanian and Russian are widely spread in the country. If you speak at least one of these languages you will not have any problems because you will be understood everywhere: in shops, in the public transport, on the streets if you want to ask how to go somewhere and so on. However if you don't speak nor Russian nor Romanian it would be more difficult to you to explain what do you want. Of course some people speak other languages in Moldova too. From foreign languages (apart from Russian) the most widely spoken is English. Turkish, German, Spanish, Italian, French are also spoken by certain people. However even if you don't speak Russian and Romanian Moldovan people will take all their efforts to understand you and to explain you everything you want.

Best time to come

Moldova is a country wich is like others especially beautiful when the nature lives. We consider the best time for coming to be early autumn. When nature doesn't sleeps yet but it's also not extremely hot. Summers are hot here. So, if you don't like the heat it's better to wait for autumn. On autumn you may also eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, which grow here. At the second Sunday of October here's Wine Day. So, you may become a spectator of that event too. So, if you want to see nature beauty of Moldova, to try local fruits and vegetables and to understand the importance of wine production in the Republic you should choose autumn as time for your visit.
