Moldova may not be the prefered destination for many tourists when going on holiday.
At East-Tour, we think this is odd as this Eastern European country located between Ukraine and Romania actually has much to offer – and even at very attractive prices.
Moldova was a part of the Soviet Union until it became independent in 1991 as a result of the Soviet collapse. Moldova then experienced a severe economic crisis but the country is gradually getting back on track, which is why we think Moldova should be your next holiday destination.
Moldova is a country rich in culture and history. Lovers of culture will consider Moldova a true paradise – especially old buildings, museums, galleries and beautiful nature particularly shines through. The country is well-known for its many opera and ballet performances as well as its winemaking. Also Moldova is located near the Black Sea with a very mild climate and sunny summer months.
Chisinau is the capital of Moldova, and indeed a very lively city. With close to one million inhabitants, Chisinau is a mix of Soviet and European influences with the latest trends of the 21st century. Here you will find both ancient culture represented by museums and monuments and also plenty of modern art. Like many other old cities Chisinau is a charming acquaintance with its many markets, parks and old buildings. Chisinau is also known for its many monasteries and vineyards – here you will find two of the largest wine cellars in the world.
Tiraspol is located in the southeastern part of the country. With a population of 160,000 it is the second largest city in Moldova. The city is modern and is known for its wine and cognac production. In Tiraspol you have the opportunity of visiting the world’s largest wine cellar, where two million bottles of wine are stored underground. Tiraspol is generally rich in culture and history and if you’re so inclined you certainly won’t be bored if your next trip includes a visit to this southeastern city of Moldova.
