Start the day with visiting Cricova cellars. One of the most popular cellars, which contains the biggest collection of exclusive wines.Here you can admire one of the oldest bottles of wine in Moldova, dating from 1902. There is one story always told in this place about the Russian pilot Yuri Gagarin, who during a visit in 1966, after getting tipsy, got lost and missed the exit. He went out the next day, having spent the night in the tasting room, currently named after him. In one of Cricova’s luxurious tasting halls, a couple years ago the former Russian president Vladimir Putin celebrated his 50th birthday.
(Wine tasting of 4 samples of wine + snack)

Enjoy a traditional lunch in a local agro-pension including moldavian dishes and homemade wine, accompanied by folk music.
After lunch explore Orheiul Vechi. The originality of Orheiul Vechi landscape is due to the defile of the Raut river, dug under the form of a canyon in the limestone layers of the former Sarmatia sea, about 14 million years ago. Local ground is rich in monuments of old civilizations, stone tools and ruins of a middle aged village.

End the day with a stop at one of the oldest monasteries – Monastery Curchi, which has the title “One of the most beautiful Bessarabian architecture” .The monastery has a religious and cultural past of two centuries and a half. This monastery was considered before and now “the most beautiful and famous monastery in Bessarabia”. According to some legends, Curchi Monastery was founded by Stefan the Great, and the architectural ensemble was formed later in the 18th-19th centuries. The most plausible version remains the one specifying that Curchi Monastery was founded in 1773 by the brothers Iordache and Mihail Curchi.

Our morning drive takes us from Chisinau to Comrat. Comrat is the capital of the autonomous region of Gagauzia, located in southwest Moldova. This is a very interesting territory since the majority of its habitants are Gagauzians. These are the only representatives of Turkic origin that affiliated with the Eastern Orthodox Church. Gagauzians migrated from Bulgaria together with ethnic Bulgarians and settled in Moldova in XIX-th century. Take the traditional gaguzian lunch in Comrat.

Until 1940, right before the war, one hundred and fifty-seven families lived here. Apart from a Russian postman and a shopkeeper of Jewish faith, everyone was German. All the houses and lands were registered under German names. It is still possible to read the profession of the people living in every single household.

By applying the knowledge he acquired in Western Europe, Constantin Mimi managed to build the first chateau in Moldova. This led him to produce great wines and raise the standards by implementing new technologies.
