Introduction

Caught in the gentle embrace of the borders of Romania and Ukraine, Moldova is a land of proud history and steadfast tradition. Centuries-old Orthodox churches dot the countryside. Brightly coloured monasteries with gold-framed ancient icons and tresses of natural light streaming in stand testament to the country’s cultural heritage.

Chisinau, Moldova’s capital, is situated on the banks of the Bac River and surrounded by lush parks and glassy lakes, is a vibrant and bustling city. Here are to be found attractions such as the Museum of Nature and Ethnography, the National History Museum, and the Exhibition Hall, which features contemporary art.

Moldova is also a prime destination for oenophiles – it has been the centre of wine-making since prehistoric times and is home to the world’s largest wine cellar, a colossal limestone mine that was transformed into a winery extending some 200 kilometres underground and holding over 2 million bottles of wine. A tour followed by a wine tasting session come highly recommended.

Between its unspoiled countryside, the hospitality of the local citizens and its unique culture, Moldova is sure to satisfy even the most jaded traveller’s desire for an authentic experience.

Welcome to Europe’s best-kept travel secret.
