Chisinau, Moldova

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. On the 4th (Mon), make a trip to Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame, admire the striking features of Triumphal Arch, then walk around Stefan cel Mare Park, and finally do a tasting at Cricova Winery. Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History, appreciate the history behind Stephen the Great Monument, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, then stroll around Dendrarium Park, and finally appreciate the history behind Sculpture of Skateboarders.
