Highlights

Moldova rivals Transylvania when it comes to rich folklore, natural beauty and astonishing history. Over the past 500 years, history, culture and religious life have molded Iasi, the cultural capital of Moldova. Iasi boasts an impressive number of Orthodox churches, almost 100, most of them located in the Golden Plateau, representing the nucleus of the city, around which the city developed over the centuries. One of the most famous monuments in the city is the stunning Church of the Three Hierarchs, built in 1639. Another major landmark in Iasi is the neo-gothic Palace of Culture, built between 1900-1926, currently housing the Ethnographic Museum, the Art Museum, and the History Museum of Moldova.

Nestled in the rolling hills of northern Moldova is the region of Bucovina, home to one of the world’s greatest art treasures: the UNESCO World heritage sites of the Painted Monasteries of Bucovina. Built in the 15th and 16th centuries and featuring colorful exterior frescoes depicting dramatic religious scenes, these richly decorated houses of worships are unique in the world.

The most famous of these, often called "the Sistine Chapel of the East" is Voronet Monastery. Erected in 1438 by Stefan the Great, Voronet’s most stunning feature is a Last Judgment fresco painted – as at all the churches – on the exterior façade. The blue paint that has miraculously never faded is known throughout the world as ‘Voronet blue’. The artists here worked in isolation, guarding their trade secrets and to this day, the composition of the paint remains a mystery.

Other painted churches not to be missed include Sucevita, with its distinctive greens, and Humor, where the frescoes are predominantly red. Also nearby are, Arbore, Dragomirna, Moldovita and Putna monasteries.

For more information about The Painted Monasteries please visit www.RomaniaTourism.com/Painted-Monasteries.html

The town of Suceava, may be the best starting point for a trip to the monasteries. Once the capital of Moldavia (from 1375 until 1565), it has some noteworthy attractions of its own, such as the remains of the Fortress of Suceava built in 1388. Today, visitors can tour the remains of the impressive fortifications and take in a great view of the city. Other sights in Suceava include the St. George Church (UNESCO World Heritage Site),  Mirauti Church, the Zamca Monastery and a number of museums dedicated to woodcraft, ethnography, history and folk art. The Bucovina History Museum displays medieval armor, coins, tools and ancient documents. Its Hall of Throne is a re-creation of Stephen the Great’s court with furniture, weapons and costumes.

A visit to Bucovina would not be complete without some stunning nature walks through Ceahlau National Park, Romania’s Olympus – the sacred mountain of the Dacians, the forefathers of the Romanian people. Make sure you bring binoculars as some 90 species of birds can be seen in the park area. Hikers won’t want to pass up taking a crack at the Bicaz Gorges, a steep, twisting-and-turning climb more than three miles long.

Food & Wine

Traditional food

Bean soup, stewed sauerkraut, parjoale (the local version of meatballs) or iahnie (a dish made of beans), are some of Moldavians’ favorite dishes. Standing out among the soups and broths is ciorba de potroace, made with chicken entrails boiled with carrots, onions, parsley, a spoonful or two of rice and flavored with bors.

The Moldavian sarmale (meat rolls in sauerkraut leaves) are not only very popular in Romania but are also a famous dish served in Romanian restaurants around the world. These meatballs, rolled in cabbage or vine leaves, are made from minced pork mixed with rice, salt, pepper, chopped dill and parsley as well as chopped onion; small portions of this mixture are then rolled in cabbage or vine leaves and boiled. The sarmale are always accompanied by polenta, a finely ground yellow cornmeal.

Local deserts include papanasi – cottage cheese dumplings (boiled or fried) and  Poale in Brau(sweet cheese pie).

Other local specialties:
Poale-n brau - small pies made from dough, eggs and cheese and fried in oil 
Pasca - a sweet cheesecake

Vineyards

For centuries, Moldova has been renowned for its vineyards and wines. One third of the wine growing surface of Romania is to be found in this part of the country.

Cotnari Vineyard

Located in the small village of Cotnari, the Cotnari vineyards are famous for their delicious sweet white wines made of grapes rich in sugar and harvested in late autumn following the first frost. The quality of these wines relies on a combination of rich soil, the late harvest and the presence of a special mold (Botritis cinerea). The vineyards have a long history, spanning over seven centuries.
The winery’s most popular wines include Francusa (dry), Feteasca Alba (semi-sweet) - highly appreciated for preserving the flavor and freshness of the grape; and the sweet, golden Grasa and Tamaioasa dessert wines.

Grasa de Cotnari is a naturally sweet wine with a delicate fragrance and a smooth interplay of fruitiness and acidity.

Tamaioasa Romaneasca - a sweet or semi-sweet white wine - has subtle honey and basil aromas, an exquisite amber color and a persistent rich taste. Its sweet taste may also suggest a blend of rose petals and wild-berries.

Odobesti Vineyard

Moldova is also home to another well-know vineyard, Odobesti, one of largest and oldest in Romania.  There are written references to the Odobesti wine growing region dating from the 17th century. Among the wines produced at Odobesti are six varieties made from native grapes, namely: Galbena de Odobesti, Plavaie, Feteasca Alba, Feteasca Regala (white grapes) and Babeasca Neagra (red).

Galbena de Odobesti – is a light, white, wine with a delicate bouquet that preserves the fragrance of the mellow grape.

Babeasca Neagra- is a full-bodied red wine with a delicate bouquet and a slight taste of clove.

Winetasting

Bucium Winery

The Bucium and Copou vineyards are set in the very hills that surround the city of Iasi. Bucium’s wine-production centre also includes an interesting wine-growing and production museum and a wine tasting room. The nearby restaurant Perla Viilor serves local, rustic, cuisine. One of the most appreciated wines produced by Bucium winery is the sparkling obtained from gently-pressed Muscat-Ottonel grapes, which ensures a lower concentration of alcohol, sweetness, delicacy, and prolonged sparkle.

Odobesti Cellars

The vineyard features the Beciul Domnesc (Princely) Cellar, erected here in 1839, with a collection of more 100.000 bottles of old wines.

Panciu Royal Cellars

A visit to Panciu vineyard also includes a walk among the vineyards to the famous Panciu Royal Cellars, dating from the 1400s, where numerous bottles of sparkling wines and champagne perfect their taste.
