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. Venture out of the city with trips to Capriana Monastery (in Capriana), Curchi Monastery (in Orhei) and Hancu Monastery (in Nisporeni). There's much more to do: do a tasting at Cricova Winery, stroll around Stefan cel Mare Park, pause for some serene contemplation at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, and admire the striking features of Triumphal Arch.
