Tours in Moldova
Moldova is one of Europe’s least-visited countries. Sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania, this overlooked gem has always been caught in the middle of an East/West game of tug of war.
Holidays to Moldova should include the capital Chișinău, a city that has struggled to shrug off its Soviet past. In the end, this becomes part of its charm, and its architecture is surprisingly evocative for a city razed to the ground by the Second World War and a devastating earthquake. Other areas are proud of their Soviet roots: ‘independent’ Transnistria is stridently distinct, and the best Moldova tours take in a bit of both! The countryside is lovely, boasting historic monasteries and one of the world’s largest wineries, meaning holidays here offer the perfect blend of rural and cosmopolitan experiences.
