Moldova (i/mɒlˈdoʊvə, mɔːl-/ or sometimes UK/ˈmɒldəvə/. Romanian:[molˈdova]), officially the Republic of Moldova (Romanian:Republica Moldova, listen ), is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south. The capital city is Chișinău.
Due to a decrease in industrial and agricultural output following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the service sector has grown to dominate Moldova's economy and currently composes over 60% of the nation's GDP. However, Moldova remains the poorest country in Europe.

Frasin, Ştefan Cosma, C.V. Slobozeanu, George Pallady, Emil Tudor, Nicolae Costăchescu and Cicerone Mucenic.

Moldavia (Romanian:Moldova) is a geographical region situated in north-east of Romania. Also is called Western Moldavia or Romanian Moldavia. As a historical region, and former principality until its union with Wallachia in 1859, Moldavia included at various times in its history the regions of Bessarabia (with the Budjak) and the entire Bukovina; the larger part of the former is nowadays the independent state of Moldova, while the rest of it and the larger, northern part of Bukovina form parts of Ukraine.
The Romanian region itself consists of eight (or seven, sometimes Suceava County - most of it in southern Bukovina - is not included) counties, spanning over 46,173km2 (17,827sqmi) (19.5% of Romania's territory). Its total population is 4,011,640 (20% of Romania's population). Most of Moldavia (6 out of 8 counties) is part of the Nord-Est development region, while the two southern counties (Galaţi and Vrancea) are in the Sud-Est development region.
