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!
