DESTINATIONS moldova chisinau Shopping MallDova


To do all your shopping under one roof, try the MallDova shopping centre, the first one of its kind in the country, inaugurated nearly a decade ago. Expect local and international brand stores, along with a selection of dining and entertainment options.


Shopping is an enjoyable affair in Chisinau, with plenty of local products on offer to suit any budget. Apart from a couple of bottles of wine that every visitor simply must make room in their suitcase for (if in doubt, go for Cricova, Mileştii Mici or Purcari), there are Moldovan art and traditional crafts, which span knit accessories and embroidery, wood and stone carvings, pottery, woven rugs and intricately painted souvenir eggs.
