Still somewhat off the beaten track when it comes to obvious holiday destinations in Europe, unspoilt nature and an air of mystery also help lend Moldova its charm.
Why Visit Moldova?
Many visitors may not know much about the country, but don’t be apprehensive, Moldova is rich in nature and history and can deliver amazing holiday memories. Rolling hills, mountainous terrain and a lack of crowds make this a wonderful location for hiking, climbing and cycling enthusiasts.
Must-sees in Moldova
Moldova’s key attractions include Orheiul Vechi, a cave monastery where rooms have been carved into the rock face. There’s also Capriana monastery, which has beautiful architecture and three churches on the site. Finally, guests should visit Stefan cel Mare Park or “park of lovers” in the capital of Chișinău.
Moldova is famed for its fine wines, and visitors should make a point of visiting a vineyard or two on their travels.
