20 Photos to Inspire You to Travel to Moldova

Добро пожаловать!

Hello everyone! With the world’s largest wine collection, a centuries-old monastery built inside of a mountain, and several fortresses from the Middle Ages, Moldova is one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. The country is quite small in size, which is perfect for travelers who want to see as much as they can in a shorter time frame. Oh, and did I mention there’s a semi-autonomous nation inside of Moldova that the United Nations doesn’t even recognize? Moldova is one of my favorite budget travel destinations! Here are 20 photos to inspire you to pack your suitcase and check it out for yourself!

Короче…

Since the USSR fell in 1991, Moldova has struggled to grow economically, however, in recent years, tourism has begun to flourish. With most sightseeing destinations just a few hours from its capital in Chisinau, it is super convenient to see a plethora of sights in a short amount of time. Moldova is a fantastic spot for travelers on a budget and history nerds like myself interested in seeing a young country blossom from its dark, Soviet past.

So what are you waiting for? Plan your trip today!

Pssst - Where are the rest?

As of right now, I have not hit my goal of traveling to all 15 former Soviet republics - I'm a working girl, cut me some slack! In the meantime, however, I am doing a ton of research to plan these future trips. Interested in seeing what online resources I use to create an itinerary to ensure my travels are educational, thorough, and, most important of all, safe?
