Lonely Planet updates Romania ... but not Moldova
31 May 2010
Lonely Planet this month published the fifth edition of their guide to Romania. Previous editions have distinguished themselves from competing guides by including a chapter about the Republic of Moldova, but the newest version covers only Romania. If you are planning to visit Moldova as a side trip you can purchase and download the relevant chapter of LP’s Eastern Europe guide from their online shop. Or take a look at LP author Leif Pettersen’s online guide, which still covers both countries.
