Moldova is an Eastern European nation, bordered by Romania and Ukraine, and headquartered in its capital, Chisinau. There are thirty-seven major administrative units in Moldova: thirty-two districts, three municipalities, and two autonomous regions.
The districts of Moldova, or raioane, are listed below. These districts are each managed at the district level in the district seat, which is the city of the same name as the district.
Districts of Moldova
The municipalities of Moldova are Chisinau, Balti, and Bender. These are cities with a special status as first-level administrative units, similar to that of the districts. Chisinau is the capital of Moldova, and holds the special status as a result of this.
Gagauzia is considered an autonomous territorial unit, and is located in southern Moldova. Gagauzia has an area of 1,832 square kilometers (707 square miles). The population of Gagauzia is over 80 percent ethnic Gagauz.
Transnistria is another territory of Moldova, located in the north, along the border with Ukraine. Transnistria declared its independence in 1990, but is treated as an autonomous territory of Moldova, with a special legal status. After the War of Transnistria in 1992, the region’s official status is unresolved.
