Blog posting from June, 2014 traveler through Ungheni and Chisinau:
Blogactiv is a blog platform dedicated to European affairs. The author, Antonia Colibasanu, is a geopolitical risk analyst
and Honorary Adviser to Romania’s Minister of Energy.
On the other side of the border, the small city of Ungheni is not much different than a town of its size in Romania in the 90s.
There was a band playing in the main square downtown – Romanian folk and pop music reminding me of the 80s and early 90s in Bucharest.
As I was discovering the architecture of the square, I kept going back in time – the soviet-like building at one end of the square was
facing a renovated Russian baroque-style small building: the 90s were facing the 40s. However, the surprise of the day got us back to present:
the free wifi available in the square as well as around it . . .
