Moldova borders on Ukraine and Romania. Although it is a beautiful country, it is primarily known for its wine. Moldavia has too many vineyards to name-360,000 acres worth, according to Wikipedia. For centuries, winemaking has been one of the primary occupations of Moldavian citizens, and many families still make wine based on ancient family recipes, using their own strains of grapes.
One of the main tourist activities in Moldova is going on winery tours. You get an “up close and personal” glimpse of the wine-making process, and of course, you get a chance to sample the goods.
Leif Patterson visited several wineries in Moldova and wrote a report on his blog, Killing Batteries.
Here’s what he had to say about the trip:
“It’s a wine-drinkers once-in-a-lifetime experience, bordering on Eden. Even wine morons like me will be in awe.”
If you want to visit Moldova, you will definitely need a passport. However, you may or may not need a Moldovan visa. For example, you do not need a visa if you are a citizen of the United States, EU member states, Canada, Switzerland, and Japan.
US citizens can stay in Moldova up to 90 days without a visa. If you are a US permanent resident but still a citizen of another country, however, you might need a visa.
