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. Change things up with these side-trips from Chisinau: Curchi Monastery (in Orhei), Capriana Monastery (in Capriana) and Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni). There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Cricova Winery, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, and don't miss a visit to Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame.

To find traveler tips, photos, maps, and tourist information, read our Chisinau travel route website .
