Bessarabian Colonies Map

German immigrants who settled in Bessarabia were colonists who had initially immigrated to central Poland between 1796 and 1806. The Napoleonic Wars made life very difficult for the German settlements because they were in the path of the Napoleon's invasion of Russia. When the Russian invitation came to re-settle in Bessarabia, more than 1,500 families made the move between 1814-1815.

The 25 Mother colonies were founded between 1814 and 1842.
