Moldova

Last Updated: 27 November 2017
Previously part of the Soviet Union, Moldova lies between Romania and the Ukraine. It is one of the least visited countries in Europe, and the countryside remains largely unspoilt. It produces some of the world’s best wines and is becoming well known for its wine tours.

Visiting the countryside is like taking a step back in time. The people are the poorest in Europe, but they are welcoming and friendly. Many live in quaint villages, which still farm with manual farm implements and use horse-drawn carts to transport their goods.

In villages, you’ll find people garbed in traditional dress and playing folksy musical instruments. The capital city, Chisinau, on the other hand, has modern facilities, wide-open green park areas and many historical sites.

Russian Orthodox churches and monasteries have been reopened, and the interiors filled with antique and colorful icons are well worth a visit
