If you google places to visit in Moldova Țipova will come up for sure Only 95 km away from Chisinau, Tipova hides incredible historical and natural gems: a tiny traditional village, a cave monastery founded in 10th-12th centuries (many sources indicate different years of its foundation) and the landscape reservation.
Moldova doesn’t have mountains and seasides. Moldova has incredibly beautiful hills, nature and very kind people. The best way to explore Moldova is to leave urban areas and experience the authentic life in the village. Less wi-fi, sometimes bad phone connection but it is worth it.
The most beautiful thing about wintertime is the snow, some do not get it, some have plenty, and Moldova has enough. Recently, it finally snowed, cause from social media one could feel the pressure of the society towards winter, so I guess nature decided to grant peoples’ wishes.
My favourite season, yet the most depressing and confusing one is autumn. This beautiful transition from the impossible heat to the cold winter, the change of the colour palette and change of the clothes to cosy ones.
Gerar Fest was the last event of this season to enjoy the winter traditions of Moldovan culture. It took place on 27th of January at the Mileștii Mici Winery (yes, that one, which holds the Guinness Record for the biggest wine collection in the world).
