Package Itinerary

Route: Chisinau - Soroca Fortress - Candle of Gratitude - Soroca Museum of History & Ethnography

We start our trip at Soroca Fortress, this gloriously solid behemoth on the Dniestr dates from 1499 when Moldavian Prince Ştefan cel Mare built a wooden fortress here. It was rebuilt in stone less than 50 years later and given its circular shape, with five bastions. Today those bastions contain medieval-themed exhibits, with a few English placards posted about that shed light on the history of the fortress. From the eastern bastions you can watch a Soviet-era river ferry shuttle cars to Ukraine, two at a time. The fortress hosts a festival every August.

You can get fantastic views of the Dniestr and the perfectly partitioned fields of Ukraine beyond from this curious obelisk, Candle of Gratitude, which was erected in 2004 to honour the 'anonymous heroes' responsible for preserving Moldova's culture over the years. It's accessible by a 660-step (not an exact count) stairway on the town's southern outskirts.

The last stop will be at Soroca Museum of History & Ethnography.
