It represents one of the most famous areas with vestiges of establishing different civilizations on the perimeter of Moldova. It is one of the two places in the world where the ruins of the city were preserved during the age of the Golden Horde. The stone caverns on the site have witnessed the presence of the first human settlements in the area.
The highlight of the day is the Palanca Village, a place where ancient traditions have been kept alive for hundreds of years. We will visit the ‘Parents House’, a household from the 1900’s where Mrs. Tatiana will delight us with some of the best traditional Moldovan dishes you will ever taste.
