Do a wine tasting
Wine lovers are in for a treat in Moldova. There are exceptional tours organised at Chateau Vartely, Cricova, Mileștii Mici, Et Cetera and Chateau Cojusna wineries, located close to the capital of Moldova, Chișinău. Another great winery to visit is Purcari in the south-east, close to the Black Sea and the river Dniester. See our article on the 7 wineries you need to visit in Moldova for more information.

The areas surrounding the Moldovan capital of Chișinău have been used since medieval times for cultivating grapes and fruits and the beautiful city itself is considered to be one of the greenest capitals in Europe. Take a walk through ‘the Alley of Classics’ in Ștefan cel Mare Park, which is like an open-air museum celebrating the greatest writers and political figures of the country, before heading down towards the Triumph Arch.
