At present, Moldova is divided into 32 districts (Romanian: raioane, raions), 3 municipalities (Chişinău, Bălţi, and Bender (Tighina)), one autonomous territorial unit (Gagauzia), and the territorial unit of Transnistria, the final status of which is yet unclear.

Formerly (from 1998 until February 2003), Moldova was made up of the following 12 units: 1 municipality, 1 autonomous territorial unit, 1 territorial unit, and 9 counties.
