Tiraspol — 3 nights

Tiraspol is internationally recognised as the second largest city in Moldova, but is effectively the capital and administrative centre of the unrecognised Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (Transnistria). Head to Green Market Center and Poştafor some retail therapy. Do some cultural sightseeing at Bendery Fortress and Kvint. Change things up with a short trip to Castel Mimi Wine Resort in Bulboaca (about 38 minutes away). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind The Suvorov Monument, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chitcani Monastery (Noul Neamt), witness the site of a historic battle at Chitcani Bridgehead, and don't miss a visit to The Tank Monument.

Chisinau — 6 nights

Chișinău Etymology and namesThe origin of the city's name is unclear, but in one version, the name comes from the archaic Romanian word chișla (meaning "spring", "source of water") and nouă ("new"), because it was built around a small spring, at the corner of Pușkin and Albișoara streets.The other version, formulated by Ștefan Ciobanu, Romanian historian and academician, holds that the name was formed the same way as the name of Chișineu (alternative spelling: Chișinău) in Western Romania, near the border with Hungary. Cricova Winery and Milestii Mici are good opportunities to explore the local culture. For shopping fun, head to Piata Centrala or Andrei Mudrea - Modern Art. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, make a trip to Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame, take in nature's colorful creations at Valea Morilor, and stroll around Stefan cel Mare Park.

As one of the smallest countries in Europe, Moldova earned its independence in 1991 and remains quite unknown to most of the world. As Moldova is located between Romania and the Ukraine, much of its culture borrows elements, such as language and traditional food, from its two neighbors. Moldova sports a rugged countryside with a mild and sunny climate thanks to the neighboring Black Sea. This region's outdoor activities--biking, hiking, horseback riding, and exploring caves--are its main attractions. While Moldova doesn't attract much tourism, it is one of the last places in Europe where you can get a completely authentic local experience.
