Only a few countries of the former Eastern Bloc have become popular tourist destinations after the end of the Cold War. At the beginning of my trip around the world, I spent 6 weeks traveling through Eastern and Central Europe. Here are 5 reasons why I think more travelers should visit the post-communist East.
There were no direct flights from Iran to India. Instead, I’d have to wait for countless of hours in an airport in Dubai or some other country of the Arabian peninsula. Heck, I thought. I might as well stay in United Arab Emirates for a few days.
Eastern Europe is becoming a more and more popular tourist destination every year. Former communist countries have opened up to visitors, showing their rich nature and cultural heritage to foreigners. But there’s still one country that goes almost unnoticed by the outside world: Moldova.
