Last October I spent touring Moldova. Ways Travel invited me to experience the nation’s greatest event, the Wine Festival.
I added a few added days to see the entire country and realize the state of Transnistria as well as Gagauziya’s autonomous area in the south west.
Here are 45 of my Instagram pictures while snapped .

What I liked most about Moldova has been that its charm and hospitality of its people. I suggest Moldova to wine enthusiasts and lovers of history. That is what’s helped the nation maintain its authenticity and charm, although the country isn’t constantly on popular eastern European itineraries.
