Between Romania to the west and Ukraine to the east lies this little landlocked European country. It was a part of Romania until World War II, and there are many cultural parallels between the two countries. It was then a part of the Soviet Union until 1991, therefore there are some parallels there. Moldova, on the other hand, has a lot to offer on its own. First, it’s remote and rarely visited – making it perfect for adventurers who want to blaze a trail. Second, it has a burgeoning wine tourism business, and wine experts know that Moldova produces some of Europe's best. Traditions are still alive and well in the villages, and hospitality is real.
