GOLD AUTUMN

MOLDOVA'S HISTORICAL MONUMENTS  

Handmade pieces of art created by Moldovan craftsmen have been awarded with hundreds of medals and prizes at international exhibitions. Every year, the republic organizes traditional competitions where visitors can not only look at the works but also buy what they like. As a rule, such events are organized in autumn, a particularly "sweet" time for Moldovan peasants.
Unique pieces of hand work can be seen also in many Moldovan homes, as well as in specialized shops. A traveller can see hundreds of beautiful water wells along local roads, rest masterpieces of architecture with wooden and metal decorations. As a rule, such wells bear elements of religious topics, or are decorated with popular symbols originating from an ancient local legend. The Greek, Turkish, West European, and later Ukrainian and Russian cuisine influenced Moldovan cuisine, but at the same time it is unique. In the beginning of the 18-th century in Moldova they started to cook hominy, soups, pastry from maize flour and groats. Cold hominy is used instead of bread. Stuffed egg-plants, marrow, peppers, tomatoes are traditional for Moldovan cuisine. Traditional pastries are rolls and "placintas" with fruit, vegetable, cheese or walnut stuffing.
In "Casa Mare" - the best room in home, the hosts always have the apples, pears and nuts for winter, and of course grapes. Such presents with the glass of wine the host will offer to every guest in home and to any passer-by with words "Bine ati venit!" ("You are welcome!").
