Moldova is known as the least visited country in Europe. A number of famous vloggers have decided to find out why that is. They have visited the biggest cities, tried the local cuisine and talked with the locals. Although everyone experienced Moldova differently, most of them agreed that international tourists should give it a try and that the country should become much more famous than it is. Among the vloggers that posted videos about their visit are:

Perhaps one of the most controversial video made about Moldova, one which created a lot of discussion and reactions, was the one made by Benjamin Rich, the English traveler and author known for his YouTube channel Bald and Bankrupt. He made a series of 6 videos about his 1-month stay in Moldova. He criticized the infrastructure in Chisinau and people in Transnistria. Although he also found nice things about Moldova, such as the food and wine, Rich said he could understand why Moldova is the least visited country in Europe. See the series of videos below:
