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. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chisinau: Bendery Fortress (in Bender), Hancu Monastery (in Nisporeni) and Capriana Monastery (in Capriana). There's lots more to do: walk around Dendrarium Park, admire the landmark architecture of Triumphal Arch, learn about winemaking at Cricova Winery, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.
