Discover civilisations that have long disappeared.


Ancient civilizations such as that of the pharaohs in Egypt, the Greek one then the Roman one definitely left a mark in the modern world. Along with them on the territory of Europe today there were other civilizations much older. We have one of Europe's oldest cultures, rivalling with ancient Egypt or Sumer. How old and what they left behind remains to be discovered together in this tour. It seems like this culture extends from the Carpathian Mountains to the Dniester and Dnieper regions, centred on modern-day Moldova and covering substantial parts of western Ukraine and northeastern Romania.
In this tour, we will also visit the vine and wine museum nearby, showing the connection between the wine and the important moments of life such as baptism, wedding and funeral: a room dedicated to the birth of infants, a room where the wedding ritual is represented. Then St. George's church from Harlau town and Ruginoasa Palace.

Itinerary

In the morning at a convenient hour, we will start on tour in Iasi and we will head west. After almost an hour drive we will reach our first stop: Cucuteni-Trypillia culture, Neolithic archaeological site. We will be acquainted with this fascinating civilization, we will travel over thousands of years, we will be able to admire what they left behind, we will experience mysteries and less common ways of life than we are today.
