Chisinau - there is no denying the unique and inimitable charm and ambience of Chişinău. The best way of savouring it is exploring on foot at least some of the length of the city's main avenue, the Stephan cel Mare Avenue. Some five kilometres long, it divides Chişinău in two, winding through the city like a multicoloured ribbon. Newsstands and stalls selling belyashi (round deep-fried pies with meat filling); street vendors of flowers and spring onions; trolley-buses of venerable age and new Mercedes jeeps.
