В южной части страны мы рекомендуем вам непременно заехать в село Бешалма. Если вас интересуют история и культура гагаузского народа, тогда стоит посетить и Национальный гагаузский историко-этнографический музей. В этом же селе туристы смогут увидеть и ветряную мельницу – одну из последних четырех, которые еще остались в Молдове.
