What is my elevation

Moldova Elevation Map

Moldova is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, with a varied and beautiful landscape. The country's elevation ranges from gently rolling hills to high mountains.


While the majority of the country is within the plain, the central area is marked by hills, and the southeast offers a mix of plateaus, valleys, and rolling hills. The Republic of Moldova lies between the Dniester and Prut rivers in the south and the west.


The Central and Southern regions of Moldova are crossed by the railroad line and Chisinau-Comrat highway, with some section of the terrain challenged by poor drainage, soil erosion, and other ecological issues.

Moldova's abundant water resources are essential for fish, birds, and agriculture and are part of the picturesque nature of the country. The countryside's forests, steppes, and floodplains offer a range of areas for hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
