Message: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Moldova Currency


The leu is the currency of Moldova and is subdivided into 100 bani. There are few ATMs in Chisinau but none outside the capital city. You can easily change dollars or Euro (Pounds not so easily). You can also change Romanian Lei and Ukraine Hyenda at a lot of places.

US dollars are accepted without conversion by quite a lot of businesses, even taxis. All along Stephan cel Mare Boulevard (the Main Street of Chisinau) money changers exhibit their rates. Credit card acceptance is few and far between and it is advised to take enough cash for your stay.
