Moldova

White wine and cornmeal mush.

Moldova is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south. The official language is Moldovan, a Romance language closely related to Romanian. Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Europe, but it is developing faster than most.

The main reasons to visit Moldova are to experience its unique culture, natural beauty, and a number of historical and cultural landmarks, such as the Orheiul Vechi monastery, the Old Town of Chișinău, and the Soroca Fortress. Moldova is also known for its wines, which are produced in the country's many vineyards. The most famous Moldovan wines are made in the Purcari region, which is home to the country's largest vineyard. Other popular Moldovan wines include Feteasca Neagra, Rara Neagra, and Busuioacă.

Moldovan cuisine is a mix of Romanian, Ukrainian, Russian, and Turkish influences. Some of the most popular dishes include mămăligă (a cornmeal mush), sarmale (stuffed cabbage leaves), and bulz (a type of polenta pie).
