Moldova facts and travel tips

Moldova Has Some of the Best Vineyards

The climate of Moldova is perfect for the growing wine industry, so make time to tour the vineyards that are just now beginning to produce at higher levels. Some of the wines you’ll find here, in fact, are often rated some of the best in the world. Even when enjoying a wine tour, you’ll find the hospitality here is warm and authentic, just like the wine.

It’s a Blast From the Past

One of the things that makes Moldova unique is that there is still an atmosphere being influenced by the old Soviet Union on display. It’s one of the few places in the world where you’ll find multiple statues and busts of Vladimir Lenin still lining city streets. Sections of the country are firmly Russian in its atmosphere and culinary opportunities, yet the rustic countryside still holds an incomparable charm.

Impressive Ottoman Influences

You’ll find impressive fortresses that date back to the 16tth century that allowed that were the focus of conflict between the Ottoman Empire and the Russians. Museums outline the history of the region, local arts and creative influences, and artifacts that have been uncovered over the years.
