Not to be confused with Moldavia (a Romanian region), the landlocked multi-ethnic republic of Moldova is considered Europe’s poorest country, struggling to recover from violent internal conflicts.
The country’s main attraction is red wine and Divin, the local brandy. Wine tours are offered to tourists in Cricova, Purcari or Milestii Mici. Travelers might just want to pay attention to visa and corruption issues while visiting the self-proclaimed autonomous part of Transnistria.
