Chisinau is a vibrant, good natured city, that despite being found at the bottom of the European economic indicator ratings, has slowly come into its own. Boutique lined avenues, fashionably dressed inhabitants and flashy cars are seen everywhere. The emigrants working abroad account for a sizeable in-coming cash flow that make up some of this paradoxical affluence. The city has some fine museums including the Pushkin Museum where Russian poet Alexander Pushkin spent his exilled years and where he wrote The Prisoner of the Caucausus.
