You'll see many locals hitching rides between towns, although who usually you have to pay for it. Nevertheless, a price equal most travelers were never asked to the price of the trip in same directionpay.
But if you are foreign there To hitchhike in Moldova is a possibility to not pay for prohibited or outlawed, so you can freely hitchhike everywhere without any restrictions. Even within the trip, capital [[Chişinău]] it just depends with every driver you go's possible to hitch rides.
Thought ''Hitchhiking'' while standing on the official language side of Moldova the road and raising your hand (so that the hand is "Moldovan," it parallel with the ground) is really Romanianused as the sign for locals hitching rides, identical mostly just some kilometres to the Romanian spoken in Romania accept written next village. Most drivers understand raising the thumb as ''autostop'' and barely ever ask for money, if you're a foreign traveler it could be more common that drivers will buy you food or drinks.[[File:Copy of 5804049 l 184757140eda47f21f46f15435cbcba8.jpg|thumb|350px|right|Hitchhiker somewhere in Chişinău, August 2009]]== Language controversy ==Though the Cyrillic alphabet. official language of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moldovan_languageMoldova]is called ''Moldovan'', it is really Romanian, identical to the Romanian spoken in [[Romania]]. Romanian language origins can be traced from the Latin language, so if you get to know any romanic language like French, Italian or Spanish you can communicate with people at a basic level. Also the majority of people understand and speak Russian as well - for some it's their only language.
Since 2007 visitors == Border Crossing ==Travelers from the [[United States of America|US]], [[European Union|EU]], [[Norway]], [[Iceland]], [[Canada]], [[Russia]], [[Switzerland ]] and [[Japan ]] do not require a [http://www.mfa.gov.md/consular-information/ visa] for entering Moldova. They are allowed to stay up to 90 days without visa and registration.
While entering '''Moldova''', you could face some problems when you entered from Ukraine via the autonomous [[Transnistria]] region. The Transnistrian border is not controlled by Moldovan authorities, which means you won't automatically get an entry stamp when entering Moldova here. This can cause a lot of problems when leaving Moldova via other border checkpoint than Transnistrian. For more information see the Transnistria page. At least on some border crossings (like [[Pervomaisk-Kuchurhan border crossing]]) it's possible to ask for a Moldovan entry stamp. === From/Into [[Ukraine]] ===* '''South-East''': If you are traveling e.g. from [[Odessa|Odesa]] into [[Moldova]], best option is to take the Ukrainian M-15 motorway south-west and cross borders at the [[Palanca-Maiaky border crossing]]. From the border, you could already try to get rides directly to [[Chişinău]] or further. Walking over the border checkpoint is no problem, just keep in mind that you have to walk 3 km from the Ukrainian to the Moldovan side, so best is to hitch a ride just after the first checkpoint towards the next. Another option is the [[Pervomaisk-Kuchurhan border crossing]]. This is a route used by many locals. It's also possible to cross on foot.* '''North-West''': When traveling from '''Moldova''' towards [[Ivano-Frankivsk]] or [[Lviv]], you have two border crossings to choose. The best option could be to hitchhike via [[Edineț]], [[Briceni]] towards [[Lipcani]] to take the [[Criva-Mamalyha border crossing]] and go on via [[Chernivtsi|Chernovtsy]]. Walking over by foot is no problem there, but you might have to wait for a lift some time. === From/Into [[Romania]] === * [[Galaţi-Giugiuleşti border crossing‎]] is the southernmost border-crossing, located in the Danube Delta. It is only three kilometers from the nearest crossing into Ukraine. * [[Leușeni-Albița border crossing]] is one of the most used to enter into/exit Moldova. Is located in the center of Moldova, and it is located close to [[Chișinău]]. You can't walk across this border crossing, but the border guards will usually help you to find a lift. ==Cities==* [[Bălţi]]
