Balti, the second-largest city in Moldova with a population of 125,000, boasts a blend of architectural styles in its homes, public buildings, churches, and schools.

The city comprises of early 19th Century Romanian, Soviet, and neo-Romanian architecture, and its streets are comparatively quieter than Chisinau’s bustling thoroughfares. Despite its calmness, Balti is far from boring and has a few mysteries waiting to be unlocked. For instance, a tank sitting in the central square and why the city has two airports instead of one. To uncover these enigmas, you’ll have to come and experience the city for yourself.
