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. Let the collections at National Museum of Moldovan Art and Andrei Mudrea - Modern Art capture your imagination. Explore hidden gems such as Curchi Monastery and Capriana Monastery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chisinau: Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni) and Hancu Monastery (in Nisporeni). Spend the 7th (Sun) exploring nature at Trip to Moldova Day Tours. And it doesn't end there: do a tasting at Cricova Winery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Orthodox Cathedral of the Transfiguration of the Saviour, explore the different monuments and memorials at Jewish Cemetery, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”.
