Weekend itineraries: we go on a trip around Moldova

What tourist routes can Moldovans afford?

CHISINAU, June 27 - Sputnik. The time of vacations gives rise to the eternal question - where to relax in the summer in order to gain both strength and impressions before the new working year.

Greece attracts, Turkey scares

The head of one of the Moldovan travel agencies, Praskovya Kuleva, told Sputnik that residents of our country, as a rule, travel most often to Bulgaria - and the prices are suitable, and the range of services is appropriate. Greece ranks second in the ranking of interest of Moldovan citizens, especially since three flights and several bus routes have been added.

"Turkey continues to be in demand among tourists from Moldova, but, of course, after the terrorist attacks, there are fewer people who want to rest there. But there are two more flights to this country from Moldova," Kuleva said.

According to her, the heat also made its own adjustments to the way tourists move - buses travel less these days, and the number of airlines' customers has noticeably increased.

See Paris and ... be impressed

Cultural tourism is not alien to the citizens of Moldova. For new impressions from living incarnations of history, as a rule, in autumn and spring they go to Hungary, Germany, Italy. But in Spain, many travel agencies combine "relaxation" at the resort and excursions to the palaces and villas of medieval grandees.

"Our citizens love to go to Disneyland Paris. As a rule, we are talking about schoolchildren. During the autumn and spring holidays, we organize tours for specific schools," said Kuleva.

By the way, as the interlocutor said, travel agencies often adapt to individual tourists, selecting an excursion group for them abroad, depending on the language the client speaks.

"Get up and go!"

A Sputnik correspondent shares with readers his impressions of traveling around the country, and also tells where and what to see within a day trip.
