I would prefer to go during the day but the distances seem to be too Long. It loks like as there are also no interesting cities in between to make a stop. And at the moment I don't like flying. Reply to this

Oh? Why? I have now slightly changed my itinerary. I would like to go from Chisinau to Iasi during the day. Iasi is a tourist attraction by itself. And the next day from Iasi to Bukarest also during the day. I don't like planes and don't think that the road is better. I have made good experiences with the railway all around the world.

There are several direct trains between Belarus and Ukraine, running from Minsk to cities such as Lviv, Kyiv, Odessa and Kharkiv. These trains all run overnight and usually consist of different types of sleeping cars. Tickets are available online from Belarusian Railways or from train stations.

We went to Ukraine a couple of years ago (a lovely country btw. We'd love to go back) and took several night trains. We found them to be perfectly safe and an excellent way to travel. So within Ukraine I would not hesitate a second to go by night.

The situation to and from Chisinau I can't help you with.
