Doncaster Sheffield is a great airport to start your journey to Chișinău, before boarding one of our ultra-efficient aircraft and taking to the skies. -Moldova is one of Europe's undiscovered gems, making it ripe for exploring. Fans of brutalist architecture, in particular, will love visiting Chișinău, where there are some great examples of grandiose buildings. Not forgetting the delicious wine for which Moldova is famous for.
