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. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Curchi Monastery and Church of St. Nicholas. Explore Chisinau's surroundings by going to Asconi Winery (in Puhoi), Capriana Monastery (in Capriana) and Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni). Next up on the itinerary: stroll around Stefan cel Mare Park, do a tasting at Milestii Mici, pause for some photo ops at Afghan War Memorial To Sons of Motherland - Eternal Memory, and admire the masterpieces at National Museum of Moldovan Art.
