Moldova - Rayon Kalarasch
Since 1990, the city of Buhl has maintained a partnership with the district of Kalarasch, which now as a result of restructuring belongs to Rayon Ungen in the central part of the Republic of Moldova. The entire district brings together 42 settlements. Kalarasch extends over 757.2 square kilometres on the plateau of Moldova and includes approximately 90,600 inhabitants. Winegrowing, agriculture, crafts and industrial enterprises are the pillars of this eastern region. This partnership is characterized by humanitarian aid, with many different support activities and the sponsorship of an orphanage. Together with Villefranche-sur-Saone and Schkeuditz, in recent years the city of Bühl has developed a firm friendship with the Moldovan region.
