The EU will support the restoration of ten cultural and historical sites on both banks of the Nistru River, Moldova.
Some of the selected objectives include:
- The windmill in the village of Gaidar, built at the end of 19th century and made entirely of wood, including the mechanisms that process the grain. The uniqueness of the mill lies in the fact that one person can manage all the processes.
- The water tower from Soldanesti district, northern Moldova, built in 1893 which was providing water to locomotives, and nowadays provides services to 400 beneficiaries.
- Synagogue in the village of Rascov
The selection process began in January 2020, with a call for project ideas. Following this, the Cultural Heritage Monitoring Group, which includes local and international experts, set up under the EU’s “Confidence Building Measures” Program, has selected 30 targets.
After a thorough documentation, the public voting process selected 16 projects.
The European Union Program team “Confidence-Building Measures,” implemented by UNDP, will sign a collaboration memorandum with the institutions that manage the cultural-historical objectives in order to launch the reconstruction process.
