Chisinau ©
Chișinău Etymology and namesThe origin of the city's name is unclear, but in one version, the name comes from the archaic Romanian word chișla (meaning "spring", "source of water") and nouă ("new"), because it was built around a small spring, at the corner of Pușkin and Albișoara streets.The other version, formulated by Ștefan Ciobanu, Romanian historian and academician, holds that the name was formed the same way as the name of Chișineu (alternative spelling: Chișinău) in Western Romania, near the border with Hungary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chisinau: Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni) and Manastirea Curchi (in Orhei). Spend the 2nd (Tue) exploring nature at Trip to Moldova Day Tours. Next up on the itinerary - stroll through Dendrarium Park, examine the collection at Muzeul National de Etnografie si Istorie Naturala, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral “Nativity of the Lord”, and don't miss a visit to Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame.
