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. Chisinau is known for parks, museums, historic sites, wineries, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: do a tasting at Cricova Winery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Dendrarium Park.
