Chisinau — 1 day

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. Kick off your visit on the 25th (Fri): let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

Highlights from your trip

Tiraspol — 6 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).

The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Bendery Fortress, relax in the rural setting at Aquatir Sturgeon Complex, take in the spiritual surroundings of Chitcani Monastery (Noul Neamt), and don't miss a visit to The Tank Monument.
