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. Cricova Winery and National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Piata Centrala and Andrei Mudrea - Modern Artfor some retail therapy. Spend the 8th (Wed) exploring nature at Trip to Moldova Day Tours. The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Milestii Mici, stroll through Parcul Catedralei, stop by Malldova Shopping Mall, and appreciate the history behind Stephen the Great Monument.
