  • Moldova, an Eastern European country and former Soviet republic, has varied terrain including forests, rocky hills and vineyards. Capital Chișinău has Soviet-style architecture and the National Museum of History, exhibiting art and ethnographic collections that reflect cultural links with neighboring Romania.

    Moldova is one of the least popular countries among travellers in Europe. Not many people know Moldova, which is a small land-locked country in Eastern Europe, north of the Balkans, surrounded by Romania to the southwest, across the Prut river, and Ukraine to the northeast. 

    During my short trip to Moldova I visited the capital and Orhei. Old Orhei is a historical and archaeological complex, located in Trebujeni, The ancient city Old Orhei - a unique natural and historical complex in the open air. It organically combines the natural landscape and vestiges of ancient civilizations. As a result of enormous archeological excavations here there were discovered the cultural layers of different epochs such as - the Paleolithic, Eneolithic, and Iron Age.
