Birdwatching routes

The cultural-natural reservation “Orheiul Vechi” has become a pilot area for birdwatching, as nesting there are around 100 species of birds, i.e. one third of the total number of birds that can be observed in the Republic of Moldova. Do not miss the chance to watch the birds in their five natural habitats: in floodplains, forests, waters, villages and farmlands, along the six birdwatching trails.
