Moldova Travel Specialist


Tucked between Romania and Ukraine, Moldova is a hidden gem with a sleepy provincial capital, a rich cultural heritage and a thriving wine industry. Moldova holidays are a discovery of medieval fortresses and archaeological complexes, explorations of the capital, and a throwback to the Soviet Era with trips to the self-proclaimed independent republic of Transnistria. Here the Soviet Union lives on and in Tiraspol, Transnistria’s capital, socialist banners and monuments to Soviet heroes abound, making it a truly off-the-beaten-track day trip when in Moldova.

Moldova’s capital, Chisinau, hasn’t quite shaken off its communist heritage with its 20th-century Soviet architecture, but this is tempered by tree-lined boulevards, picturesque parks and a vibrant nightlife. This combined with its friendly welcome makes it the perfect start to any Moldova holiday.

Once known as the ‘vineyard of the Soviet Union’, Moldova has a brilliant wine scene. Wine lovers will find countless delights here at producers such as Purcari Winery and Milestii Mici Inery, which boasts the world’s largest wine cellar. Travellers who venture out of town marvel at the fortress at Soroca, home to a gypsy population that live in lavish mansions, join the monks at Orheuli Vecha Cave Monastery, and relax in the thermal springs of Cahul.

Peter Wybrow
Chisinau is one of the most welcoming and friendliest capitals of Eastern Europe, but it's also a fantastic base from which to head out and explore some of the region's more fascinating historic and cultural sites. Spend a day or more venturing further afield and discover the surreal communist throwback republic of Transnistria, where you can buy a framed photo of Stalin in the post office.

Peter's Tips
1
Spend a night or two sleeping amid the vineyards at Chateau Vartely, an excellent winery-hotel near Orhei.
2
Chisinau's open-air flower market takes place by the Cathedral Park, adding a riot of colour to the city.
3
Moldova does fantastic pastries, pies and breads. Sample placinte, a delicious flatbread stuffed with salty cheese and herbs.
