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. Go for a jaunt from Chisinau to Orhei to see Curchi Monastery about 58 minutes away. There's still lots to do: learn about winemaking at Cricova Winery, pause for some photo ops at Stephen the Great Monument, stroll around Dendrarium Park, and take in nature's colorful creations at Valea Morilor.
