Moldavia is in northern Romania, bordering Ukraine and Moldova. It is an historical province of Romania, founded by Prince Bogdan I in 1356, but its history can be traced back and its Thracian-Dacian-Roman settlements. Moldavia’s hero is Stephen the Great (Stefan cel Mare), who fought back the Turks in the 15th century and built churches and monasteries throughout the region. Luckily, the churches built centuries earlier still stand, and they are some of the most fascinating sights in all Romania.
