Chisinau — 7 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. Chisinau is known for parks, sightseeing, and historic sites. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: stroll around Stefan cel Mare Park, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, admire the striking features of Triumphal Arch, and learn about winemaking at Milestii Mici.

Tiraspol — 4 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).

There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Bendery Fortress, take in the spiritual surroundings of Chitcani Monastery (Noul Neamt), appreciate the history behind The Suvorov Monument, and do a tasting at Kvint.
