Hey everybody!

My name is Natalie and from 28th of December till 4th of November I will be travelling with a friend of mine around Moldova. We have no current route, so we would appreciate suggestions on where to go (and where not to go for sure), what to eat and what souveniers to buy =)

Thanks in advance,

Hi, Natalie!

Nice to hear about your plans to discover Moldova!
I will be in the country until 2 Jan, mainly in Ceadir-Lunga on the south.
So if you'll have the time you're welcomed in Ceadir-Lunga!
About the places: you should visit for sure the capital - Chisinau, do some sightseeing, you can visit Codrii - a Natural reservation near the capital with a nice nature and places - there's the oldest Monastery in the country - Capriana - 1429, Soroca fourtress, Curchi Monastery from 1765 - a very beautiful place to see! Orcheiul Vechi with its picturesque places, but not sure if the weather will be fine to go there.
About the food - MAMALIGA and ZAMA - are the MUST in Moldova! Sarmale, placinte, lamb meet and many others which you can find in the restaurants in Chisinau! and for sure all these combined with a nice moldavian wine!
As well souvenirs you can find in Chisinau in city center!

In Ceadir-Lunga you can find many other nationalities, like: gagauzian and bulgarian with their culture and traditions. (as well as in Comrat and Taraclia).
Here you can visit museums, maybe concerts, try local food , which as well is something special and very tasty and meet nice people!
In Ceadir-Lunga there a unique Horse farm, which a single Ippodrom in whole country. Here you can take lessons of riding a horse and have a view of those gratious animals!

Hello Natalie!
It's great you are coming to visit my country! Welcome to Moldova! I'll be in Chisinau(Kishinew) during these days. In the city you should go to restaurant "La Placinte" to taste traditional food. An interesting place to go is a place called "Spalatorie" where are coming a lot of nice people. They have different screenings, events and dancing on weekend nights :) The museums are also interesting places to visit if you like ;)
Have fun and enjoy your travels!
