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. Explore Chisinau's surroundings by going to Saharna Monastery (in Rezina) and Curchi Monastery (in Orhei). Dedicate the 12th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Cricova Winery, appreciate the history behind Stephen the Great Monument, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, and admire the landmark architecture of Triumphal Arch.
