b]Soroca[/b is a city in the north of the Republic of Moldova, near Nistru river close to the border with Moldava and Ukraine, there is a big fortress. Be careful because there are some Roms a lot better to stay with a moldovan people. To go there you need to take the bus in the North of Chisinau. 2 hours by road. In this city you can find a clean hotel+sauna but not cheap some good bars friendly and an expensive restaurant.

The bus station is called GARA DE NORD and it is located on Calea Mosilor corner with Ismail street. What restaurant did you find expencive? I would say that the prices are cheaper in Soroca than in Chisinau. Roms in Soroca constitute a big majority and are equal members of the society of Soroca as Moldovans or any other ethnicity. They are doing quite well from the financial point of view and has amaising, most unusual houses. I think that the gipsy area is one of Soroca "travel sight" and worths to be visited.

The expensive restaurant is in the centre of Soroca not near the river Nistru. Be careful to gypsies near the bus terminus of Soroca, you need to have a friend with you it will be more confortable.
Hotel near Nistru at the entrance of Soroca is expensive too but very clean, modern and hight class.
The other bars and little restaurants are cheap and very good, music and nice girls. If you are french like me people of Moldova will be proud to speak in french (few words) with you but answer to tham they will be happy.

I think you are exagerating about gipsies in Soroca. You should be always careful at the bus station, but theives don't have nationality.

We drove up to Sorocca a couple of weeks ago. I don't know how you made it in two hours. I was in a rental car and it took me a lot longer - dodging the potholes is time consuming.

Wish I remembered the restaurant we found. Some locals led us up the hill a few blocks to a nice place in a cellar. The food was good, service was adequate, and prices reasonable.

Also, a kilomenter or two from town there is a nice observation town on a hill. By our count is is 680 steps to observation level. In complete violation of every rule in Moldova, the steps were absolutely level and all spaced at the same height. The view makes it worth the climb.

If you make the trip in a car, don't let yourself get low on gas. There aren't that many stations along the road and they seem to close about 7 PM, or have no petrol. We were a few miles from the panic zone when we could finally tank up.

You are certainly correct, great views! I got some wonderful panoramas from the top when I was in Moldova in January:

And lots of other panorams from the trip here:

His IP address is from India. These sort of people post a few 'valid' posts so they can post topics without have to get them approved. They do this so they can post a link to some porn sites etc. Normally I remove them straight away as they have nothing to do with moldova.
Degree in Geography? unlikely I think hes cut and pasted from another website.

The etymology of proper noun "Soroca" is Slavic and it means "magpie".

Well soroca’s Fortress, and eventually the village of rich Gypsies. Your guide will tell about the story of the well-kept fortress, which has been serving during many centuries as a shelter for Moldavians during Turkish and Tartar invasions.
