Moldova ended up being a big surprise for me. I knew the history would be interesting and the food would be good but I wasn’t expecting to go deeper into the culture of wine or explore the nightlife or meet some awesome locals. There are layers here are just waiting to be peeled back as you start to get to know this lovely lesser known country.

When to go
Spring is the best time to visit Moldova as the weather is warm, everything is in bloom and it is the best time for bird watchers. It can get rainy, though so bring a raincoat. Winters are chilly but dry making it nice to walk around the city and without as many tourists as you get in the summer. Summers are long and warm leading into grape harvest season in early fall.
