Chisinau → Molovata Noua → Curchi → Chisinau

After breakfast, you will discover the ingredients of Moldovan vermouth from Dubasari factory. During the soviet period, the Buchetul Moldovei wine was one of the most popular on the market. This vermouth is the older brother of the Italian Martini and contains infusions of more than 20 varieties of plants.

You can have lunch at Laguna tourist complex from Molovata Noua village. Fish soup served with mamaliga on a terrace on the bank of Nistru River will create an unforgettable atmosphere.

Next, you will visit the Curchi monastery surrounded by a high stone wall, with towers at each corner, creating the impression of a fortress. The church, built in 1810, has monumental forms, with baroque elements, similar to those of St. Andrew cathedral from Kiev, but at the same time, preserving the traditional Moldovan style.

Chisinau → Tiraspol → Chisinau

After breakfast, you will discover the mysteries of Noul Neamt (Chitcani) monastery where you can view the picturesque landscapes from the top of the highest bell tower in Moldova. You will definitely appreciate the monastery museum where old icons and religious books are kept.

In Tiraspol, you will have the opportunity to travel in time back to USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics). You will start by visiting the monument of Vladimir Lenin and tanks left from the Second World War. The city seems to be a ghost of the Soviet past. Nevertheless, you will be amazed by the contrasts, one of which is the football complex Sheriff, a pearl of contemporary architecture.

After a ride along the Nistru River, we will stop at Kvint Cognac Factory. Harmony, refinement and tradition underlie the oldest and most genuine spirits – Doina, Surpriznii, Suvorov, and of course the 50 years old Cneazi Vitghenstein. Offer yourself the opportunity to be one of the people who have tasted these cognacs.
