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. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cricova Winery and The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”. National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History and National Museum of Moldovan Art will appeal to museum buffs.
