Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Chisinau accepting of differences?

Answer this Question

When we asked people about diversity in Chisinau and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, has some level of diversity, but it is not as diverse as many other European cities. The majority of the population is Moldovan, with smaller communities of Ukrainians, Russians, Bulgarians, Gagauz, and other ethnic groups. While the city has a mix of cultures and languages, it is still predominantly Eastern European in character. In general, people in Chisinau are accepting of differences, but the level of tolerance may vary depending on individual attitudes and experiences. Moldova has a history of coexistence among different ethnic and religious groups, which has contributed to a relatively tolerant atmosphere. However, it is important to note that discrimination and prejudice can still be found in some parts of society. Overall, Chisinau is a city where people with different backgrounds can live together, but it may not be as diverse or as accepting as some other European capitals," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Chisinau, Moldova.

"Foreigners (men) are very well tolerated by the feminine population and quite bad tolerated by men. They see this more as a competition: who is better? If you are just a normal guy (as a foreigner), who does not involve in conflicts, this means that you will be fine. Gays are not tolerated. Blacks are tolerated, but you will see just 0.000001% from the population," commented one expat who made the move to Chisinau, Moldova.
