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. Explore Chisinau's surroundings by going to Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni), Curchi Monastery (in Orhei) and Condrita Monastery (in Condrita). There's still lots to do: stroll 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 take in nature's colorful creations at Valea Morilor.
