Moldova—a beautiful stretch of land located between Romania and Ukraine along the Danube River and within quick, day-trip distance of the Black Sea—was back at ITB Berlin 2019 in a big way. The country had a packed daily schedule of events that included wine tastings, gastronomic offerings, and virtual cultural tours.

Moldova, one of the world's top-20 wine-exporting countries, attended the important fair to share its distinct brand of authentic and gourmet tourism with the travel world. If you missed Moldova in Hall 3.1, Stand 625, don’t worry. Feel free to reach out for more information about this growing tourism destination and all it has to offer travelers in the way of wine, culture, and authentic adventure.

The stand showcased the traditional tapestry created to show Moldova’s combination of gourmet traditions and cultural heritage. Made for the ProWein Trade Fair, the 130-meter embroidered canvas was created by 12 artists to display a variety of the region's traditional ornaments. Inspired by the Moldovan carpets that have been included among UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list, the work took more than 2,500 hours and used more than 50 kilograms of wool, 500 needles, and thousands and thousands of strokes and stitches to highlight Moldova's human talent and craftsmanship in winemaking.

In addition to the tapestry, Moldova held a series of events at the stand. Each day, visitors could participate in a wine tasting. Other events included 360-degree virtual tours as well as an explanation of the Martisor tradition, which is a spring celebration that brings together friends in hopes for prosperous months to come.

Though ITB is over, winemakers and tourism professionals from Moldova continue to be on hand to share information and insight into the ways potential partners and savvy travelers can get the most out their experiences in this up-and-coming travel destination, with its wine routes, archaeological sites, and UNESCO-protected Biosphere Reserve.
