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. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chisinau: Hancu Monastery (in Nisporeni), Capriana Monastery (in Capriana) and Curchi Monastery (in Orhei). And it doesn't end there: do a tasting at Cricova Winery, stroll around Dendrarium Park, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History, and awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area.
