A short trip to Moldova

Moldova is a small country which is located not so far from the geographic center of Europe. However, it is enough hard to find modern botanical information about it, even in Wikipedia. Therefore, a group of Ukrainian botanists under egids of the green touristic project “Explore with us” has decided to visit the neighboring country for receiving of own impressions about Moldavian botanical gardens, parks and some natural areas. Today we would like to share our pictures and notes from a short trip to Moldova in pages of the Global Botanical Portal.
