Chisinau

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. Change things up with these side-trips from Chisinau: Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni), Asconi Winery (in Puhoi) and Curchi Monastery (in Orhei). There's still lots to do: walk around Stefan cel Mare Park, admire the landmark architecture of Triumphal Arch, pause for some serene contemplation at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, and do a tasting at Cricova Winery.

To see ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Chisinau road trip planner.

Getting from Rezina to Chisinau by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of taxi and bus. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
