Moldova, Romania, Ukraine... This website is not about countries and borders. It is rather about the experience we invite you to join us and search. An experience given by the untamed nature, whether on top of Hoverla Peak or down by the Răut Bend.
An experience created by local people and their traditions, whether in one of Bukovina's painted monasteries, while following the traces of the medieval Moldavian Kingdom and its strongholds or while attending to a classical music concert in Odessa. An experience which goes beyond standard hotel-to-hotel tours and takes one to people's houses instead, talking to them and seeing life through their eyes. Listening to their music, joining their dances, tasting their meals and stepping in what seems to be another world. A world of extreme cultural diversity and complex history.
Where Jewish craftsmen, Polish miners and merchants, German industrialists, Romanian and Ukrainian farmers and shepherds have created a heritage we have taken the task of showing the world. Be welcome and feel free to join us in this endeavor!

All this in a fascinating natural scenery. Most of them are here.Read More
