It’s hard to exaggerate the role that wine plays in Moldova’s cultural and economic life. Archaeological discoveries indicate that our wine-making tradition is one of the world’s oldest, dating back 7,000 years to the Neolithic era’s Cucuteni-Trypillian civilization.
Down through the centuries, grapes and wine have become an indispensable part of our customs, traditions and gastronomy. They are also interwoven in our folklore, myths and legends.Citește mai departe
Rural life in Moldova is much like it was in days gone by.
Country folk grow their vegetables in gardens and fruit on trees they’ve planted. They also raise livestock in barnyards or fields near their homes, draw water from wells or fountains, and cook in traditional ovens.
Our rural folk are the “salt of the earth” of legend – hard-working, honest and always ready to help others.
The world’s great chefs say local, healthy and tasty are the trends they’re embracing these days to give their diners a fabulous culinary experience. Moldova has long been ahead of this curve by embracing local, healthy and tasty forever. Our clean black earth produces great vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds. And the vast majority of our farmers do not use commercial fertilizer or pesticides. We were giving consumers natural food before natural became a movement.Citește mai departe
If learning about other cultures is one of the reasons you like to travel, you’ll love Moldova. Our country is an interesting mix of cultures – Moldovan, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Greek, Tatar, Turkish and others. The mix stems from Moldova being a crossroads of other civilizations, particularly Romanian, Russian and Ottoman. A number of peoples have conquered or settled our land over the centuries.
You will find many monuments and other reminders of Soviet times in Moldova, including statues of Vladimir Lenin, the father of communism. Moldova’s Transnistria region is a little-changed repository of what life was like in the U.S.S.R. This may not last, however, so it would be wise for you to include Transnistra on your itinerary when you visit Moldova.Citește mai departe
