Shopping

Wine is the most obvious gift. Wine shops are everywhere but it's cheaper – and a better experience – to buy at the wineries themselves. Textiles are a specialty and you can find beautiful, hand-embroidered national outfits and blankets in Chişinău. For generic souvenirs, the main tourist sites in Chişinău have shops attached, or you can browse the capital's Kishinǒsky Arbat.
