A. Pushkin sites

About Tour

The great Russian poet A. Pushkin was exiled to Bessarabia in 1820-1823. The excerpt from the poem "A Ovid" by the Russian poet is engraved on the monument of A. Pushkin in the public park of Chisinau. Exactly from here we will begin your journey to the places where the poet lived and was inspired. These places deserve to be visited not only because the great Pushkin made them famous, but also because in themselves, these sites are unique and deserve your attention.

If you go to Moldova, for tourism or for business, you can't do it without Cristina. She knows the country perfectly, its history, its culture, its traditions... And she knows all its places: monasteries, churches, villages. Plus it speaks perfect Russian, Romanian and Italian and will let you communicate with all the people you meet.

Thanks, Cristina, for making this trip beautiful and unforgettable.

Natalia is an excellent guide, full of interesting information about the places we went, recommended a very good hotel, a good van and driver. She is everything else you want/expect from a tour guide, and she was also a hard-working, intelligent and caring member of our team. Without her skills, flexibility and perseverance, our trip would not have been as successful as it was. She really cares about her clients, and has the willingness and ability to make whatever needs to happen, happen. She was great!
