Chisinau is connected by railways and roads with all municipalities, cities and district centers and many villages in the republic, as well as with urban centers in Romania, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Turkey, Belarus, Russia and other states. From an administrative point of view, it is divided into five sectors: Centru, Botanica, Buiucani, Râșcani and Ciocana. The local organ of the state power is the City Hall of the municipality (the Municipal Council).
Chisinau is called "The city of white stone". The respective nickname comes from the abundance of light colored buildings, being constructed of white limestone. Among others, the first verse of the current form of the hymn of Chisinau, entitled My City (music: Eugen Doga, lyrics: Gheorghe Voda), is: My city made of white stone flowers. The previous form of the first verse in the hymn was: My city with white stone shoulders.
