Chisinau Sights

Chisinau, Moldova’s capital, is certainly the country’s liveliest city. But it is also a place of history still visible in the architecture of Old Town. The main sights in Chisinau are easy to see on foot. The seat of the government, City Hall, the Arch of Triumph, the Bell Tower and the Orthodox Church are all clustered in the center. And you can look forward to charming restaurants and cafes. You can also enjoy plenty of excellent Moldovan wine while in Chisinau. A wine tasting should be on your list of to-dos. About 30 minutes by car outside of Chisinau you’ll find two famous underground wineries. These are just two of the numerous options for day trips from Chisinau.
