Continent Moldova


Why Travel Moldova?


Moldova, an Eastern European country and former Soviet republic, has lot to offer you. From terrain encompassing forests, rocky hills to vineyards and more, this country shares linguistic and cultural roots with its neighbour, Romania. Its wine regions include Nistreana, known for its reds, and Codru, home to some of the world’s largest cellars.


For those who love performing art, a visit at the former Chisinau Choral Synagogue that today houses the Chekhov Drama Theatre is quite worthy. Alternatively, one could also explore the Moldovan capital of Chisinau (formerly Kishinev), which stands on the banks of the small River Byk.


Other important sites include the Chisinau cemeteries—the Armenian Cemetery and the Jewish Cemetery; Chisinau Lake that offers picturesque bathing beaches; Emil Racovita—the cave complex in the village of Criva in Moldova is one of the biggest in the world; the Stanca-Jeloboc forest; Lore Museum; monument of Stefan cel Mare; wonder at Benderi (Tighina) - one of the oldest towns in Moldova; or simply relax and unwind in Cahul—a town famous for its thermal spas and mud treatments.


For those who love to take some souvenirs back home, good buys are the vividly-coloured costumes, handmade carpets and locally-produced wines and brandies. The main open-air market (tolchok) is on Calea Mosilor, about 10 minutes' drive away from central Chisinau.
