I was born in Moldova – country in Eastern Europe, located between Romania and Ukraine – the most common description of our country for foreigners. I have created this page because of two things. The first one is to show what I am proud of the most about my country, and the second: what represents Moldova the best – what it really is. This is my country on YouTube :)
This is the capital of my country: CHIȘINĂU. According to one version, the name comes from the archaic Romanian word chişla (meaning „spring”, „source of water”) and nouă(„new”), because it was built around a small spring.
