Transnistria

Known to some as Moldova's "breakaway state," Transnistria can feel like a completely separate country.
Get out of town with these interesting Transnistria side-trips: Rezina (Saharna Monastery & Hanul Lui Hanganu). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Bendery Fortress, pause for some serene contemplation at The Christmas Cathedral, learn about winemaking at Kvint, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Tighina Military Cemetery.

For where to stay, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, read our Transnistria online travel route planner.

Chisinau

Chisinau ©
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. Venture out of the city with trips to Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni) and Curchi Monastery (in Orhei). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Triumphal Arch, learn about winemaking at Milestii Mici, contemplate the long history of Stephen the Great Monument, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”.
