About Moldova

The Republic of Moldova is a state in Eastern Europe. It shares borders with Ukraine and Romania. Capital: Chisinau, Official language: Romanian, Continent: Europe. Moldova is one of the most densely populated countries in Europe. The population density in the country is approximately 132 people per square kilometre.
Moldova is a country of vineyards. Even when looking at it from a bird’s eye view, it seems to be a bunch of grapes. The first vines in these parts appeared more than 9000 years ago, and the locals started making wine 5000 years ago. A must-have for any holiday in Moldova is the national corn porridge Mamalyga, which is a decoration of any table and a traditional glass of wine. In order to convey the mood of this country, we recommend to listen to the hit of the early 2000 – Moldavian band O-Zone – “Dragostea Din Tei” – bright, lively, positive!
