Know More about this tour

Day 1 | Departure from Iasi to Kishinev

In the morning, our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Iai and you will leave for Kishinev, the capital city of Moldova. On your way there, you will stop and visit two of Moldova's most important religious sites, the Hncu Monastery and the Cpriana Monastery.

Once you arrive in Kishinev, your city tour will begin. You will visit the Triumphal Arch, a monument built in 1841 and called by many the "Holy Gates of Kishinev". Afterwards, you will take a walk through the Stephen the Great Park, and you will learn about the life of the famous Stephen III, the voivode of Moldavia. Last but not least, you will visit the cottage where Alexander Pushkin, the national poet of Russia, lived for 3 years during his exile.

After the city tour, your guide will take you to the hotel for check-in and lunch.

After lunch, you will visit the famous underground wine city of Cricova. Considered the pearl of Moldovan winemaking, the wine cellars of Cricova are so large that you need to drive through them. These wine cellars are holding the personal wine reserves of some of the world's most powerful people, such as Vladimir Putin. After a tour of the winery, you will stop in one of its grand halls for a wine-tasting session. You can also buy a souvenir that will remind you of this wonderful location.

Overnight in Kishinev.

Day 2 | Kishinev Old Orhei Iasi

Breakfast

The second day of your tour will begin with a trip to the Old Orhei Archeological Complex, located in a rocky gorge at a depth of more than 200 meters. This is one of the most famous areas with vestiges of establishing different civilizations on the perimeter of Moldova. The area contains traces of human civilization that date back to the Paleolithic, Eneolithic, and Iron Ages. This is also one of the two places in the world where the ruins of the city were preserved during the age of the Golden Horde.

The highlight of the day is the Palanca Village, a place where ancient traditions have been kept alive for hundreds of years. We will visit the Parents House, a household from the 1900s where Mrs. Tatiana will delight us with some of the best traditional Moldovan dishes you will ever taste.

After lunch, you will have the opportunity to craft your own hand-made bracelet to remind you of your trip to Moldova.

In the evening we will reach Iai, and your tour will come to an end.
