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. Chisinau is known for parks, historic sites, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: walk around Stefan cel Mare Park, admire the landmark architecture of Triumphal Arch, steep yourself in history at Stephen the Great Monument, and do a tasting at Cricova Winery.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Chisinau online trip itinerary planner.

Washington DC, USA to Chisinau is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Washington DC to Chisinau due to the time zone difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.

As one of the smallest countries in Europe, Moldova earned its independence in 1991 and remains quite unknown to most of the world. As Moldova is located between Romania and the Ukraine, much of its culture borrows elements, such as language and traditional food, from its two neighbors. Moldova sports a rugged countryside with a mild and sunny climate thanks to the neighboring Black Sea. This region's outdoor activities--biking, hiking, horseback riding, and exploring caves--are its main attractions. While Moldova doesn't attract much tourism, it is one of the last places in Europe where you can get a completely authentic local experience.
