MOLDOVA - Republica Moldova

The Republic of Moldova (Romanian: Republica Moldova, 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.
Moldova declared independence on August 27, 1991 as part of the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The current Constitution of Moldova was adopted in 1994. A strip of Moldovan territory on the east bank of the river Dniester has been under the de facto control of the breakaway government of Transnistria since 1990.
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. The name "Moldova" is derived from the Moldova River; the valley of this river was a political centre when the Principality of Moldavia was founded in 1359.


These beautiful covers sent by my good friend George from Chisianau. He is a well known philatelist and personalized stamp designer of Moldova too. The covers posted on May 31, 2016 and received in my hands on June 09, 2016. Moldovan stamps are very attractive in design and thematic. Thank You George for the beautiful covers.
