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. Get out of town with these interesting Chisinau side-trips: Manastirea Curchi (in Orhei) and Old Orhei Archeological Complex (in Trebujeni). Spend the 10th (Sat) exploring nature at Trip to Moldova Day Tours. There's much more to do: make a trip to Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame, tour the pleasant surroundings at Stefan cel Mare Park, learn about winemaking at Milestii Mici, and see the interesting displays at Muzeul National de Arheologie si Istorie a MoldoveiMuzeul National de Arheologie si Istorie a Moldovei.
