Slotted between Ukraine and Romania, Moldova is silently tucked in the lap of South-eastern Europe. There are hamlets embellished with splendorous gothic architecture and scenic beauties. Aromatic vineyards, colourful orchards which turn white with snow during spring season, soft and splendorous linings of majestic mountains, cold waters lakes shadowed by old leafy trees in summers and breezy air in autumn; all come together to carve a secret paradise for keen travellers, as the country still remains an anonymous mystery to the rest of the world.
Moldova presently is a sovereign country which embraces most of the land which was earlier known as Bessarabia. Majority of land was conquered and taken over by the other European countries, and what remains today is just the central and the eastern part of original Moldova. The nation used to come under Hungarian Kingdom until 1359, when it attained independence.
Although the constitution of the country allows the freedom of choice of religion, only 4% of Moldova’s population strays away from Orthodox Christianity. Moldavians exhibit a very bright and colourful culture submerged in the waves of spectacular art, soft music, traditional dance forms, flavoursome food and locally produced sparkling wines.
The charming countryside called Saharna tops the list of major attractions of Moldova with its tranquil natural views of lakes, hills and mild waterfalls. It also houses a peaceful and spectacular Holy Trinity Monastery. Apart from this, there are innumerable untouched natural scenic destinations to be explored. Admire the local arts, delectable national cuisine, warm hospitality of the natives, their unique culture and habits, when wandering in this tiny yet beauteous country, Moldova.
