What shall I see

Our guide will pick you up from the accommodation and your trip can start. Enjoy a day trip to Chisinau, the Moldavian capital. On the way, you'll discover about the history of 2 of Moldova's most beautiful monasteries.

Your first stop will be at Hancu Monastery, among the most visited historic monuments and one of the major churches of Moldova. The convent is surrounded by many underground springs with sacred water which attract people from all over the world. Our next trip will be at one of the earliest and most beautiful monuments in Moldova, Capriana Monastery. For quite a long time, the monastery was the residence of the Metropolitan of Moldova and it was patronized by many Rulers of Moldova including Stefan the Great. Chisinau was recorded for the first time in 1420, but a lot of it had been leveled in WWII and with a dreadful earthquake that struck in 1940. They began rebuilding the city in 1950 at a Soviet style, and both the centre and the outskirts are dominated by pragmatic high-rise buildings.

On your tour, you'll discover Chisinau's major attractions: their own Arc de Triomphe, the 1841 Holy Gates in the middle of the city and we're going to stroll through a few of the town parks and find out about Prince Stefan, the royal emblem of Moldova's medieval past. We'll stop at Russia's national poet Alexander Pushkin cabin, where he lived for 3 years during his exile. The interior is full of original furnishings and personal items, such as a portrait of his beloved Byron.

Next on our itinerary is Cricova Winery, located at a depth of 50-80 meters, representing a genuine underground city. The Moldavian cellars in which Vladimir Putin keeps his wine are so large you will need to push them. You'll also find Herman Goering's personal collection, taken by the Red Army from Berlin in 1945. Thought of as the pearl of Moldovan winemaking, Cricova is the creator of production of high quality elite wines. The effect of Ancient Greece and the Roman period is reflected in the reliefs you may discover within the winery. In this exceptional place, you'll have to chance to discover the steps to wine tasting and try a variety of the terrific assortment of wines. Optionally, you might choose to have a memorable lunch in this amazing location.
