However, in recent times, this seems to be changing as more and more tourists make their way to this unspoiled countryside destination. This tiny landlocked country emits an atmosphere that takes you back in time – tourists are met by Soviet-era buildings and farms with no equipment, as everything is done by hand.

Expect the most peculiar situations and sights in Chișinău – this lively city is home to an abandoned Soviet circus and a picturesque Jewish cemetery. One of Moldova’s gems has to be its vineyards – go on a wine tour and explore the best wine selections that are on offer!

Located on the western banks of the Dniestr River, Bender was the hardest hit by military conflict, but today it is filled with people strolling while taking in the city’s sites. Popular attractions include Memorial Park and Bendery Fortress.
