Discover the longest underground wine city and the most impressive castle from the country


If you want to dive deeper in Moldova's history join me for this tour and let's drive to Hancesti town to see the Manuc Bey Mansion and it's museum, where the local guide will explain in details how this small country appeared on Europe's map. The mansion itself is a French-style castle, complete with a winter garden, guard towers, and a park. It was built in the second half of the XIX century by Alexander Bernardazzi, Moldova's most famous architect and for several decades has been owned by the Mirzoian family, Manuc-Bey's descendants.

On the way back to Chisinau, let's visit Milestii Mici Underground Wine City, mentioned also in the Guinness Book of Records for having the biggest wine collection in the world. The length of this underground winery is 200 km at a depth of 40-85 meters. The constant temperature of 12-14ºC and the humidity of 85-95 % of this „kingdom of wine" ideally contribute to the full revelation of natural characteristics of elite wines.
