Chișinău Etymology and namesThe origin of the city's name is unclear, but in one version, the name comes from the archaic Romanian word chișla (meaning "spring", "source of water") and nouă ("new"), because it was built around a small spring, at the corner of Pușkin and Albișoara streets.The other version, formulated by Ștefan Ciobanu, Romanian historian and academician, holds that the name was formed the same way as the name of Chișineu (alternative spelling: Chișinău) in Western Romania, near the border with Hungary. Appreciate the collections at Old Orhei Archeological Complex and National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Curchi Monastery and Saharna Monastery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chisinau: Hancu Monastery (in Nisporeni), Capriana Monastery (in Capriana) and Tipova Monastery (in Tipova). There's still lots to do: learn about winemaking at Cricova Winery, walk around Dendrarium Park, see the interesting displays at Muzeul National de Istorie a Moldovei, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Dormition of the Theotokos.
