Watching the changing of the goosestepping guards on the hour at the Victory Memorial dedicated to the Soviet Army in 1945 in the Memorial Park. An eternal flame burns in the centre in memory of Chisinau’s unknown soldiers who died in WWII. Soldiers' graves line the boundaries of the park and there is a small military cemetery at its northern end. In the centre of the park is a memorial to those who died during the fight for Moldovan independence in the early nineties.

A city break in Moldova is perfect for enjoying the finer things in life against a uniquely fascinating backdrop of serene countryside, rows of sunflower fields, swathes of forests, secluded monasteries and a healthy abundance of vineyards. This landlocked gem, tucked between Romania and Ukraine, is relatively untouched by tourists and offers a wonderful and intriguing glimpse into the quirkier aspects of post-Soviet rule; manifested in its distinct architecture and enduring echoes of socialism.

Those on a Moldova city break will find themselves in the country’s idiosyncratic capital city, Chisinau. With an alluring blend of 19th-century and Soviet buildings, and with the goose-stepping guards of Memorial Park, a visit here is an unforgettable reminder of a bygone era.

The tree-lined boulevards, numerous parks, bustling markets, excellent museums and striking cathedrals ensure there is plenty to do on a short break here. Literary fans will be fascinated by the Pushkin Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, various opera houses and concert halls will keep aficionados of the arts busy.

Perhaps the best reason to visit Moldova on a city break, though, is the wine. With an enormous and varied selection of local wines on offer in its multitude of fine restaurants, your palate will certainly get a work out here. Just outside Chisinau is the Milestii Mici complex which houses the biggest wine collection in the world, with a staggering 2 million bottles kept in its 75 miles of cellars.
