Chisinau — 14 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. Change things up with these side-trips from Chisinau: Bender (Bendery Fortress & Tighina Military Cemetery), Tiraspol (Green Market Center, Eternal Flame, &more) and Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni). The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Triumphal Arch, stroll around Stefan cel Mare Park, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”.
