The names of some local dishes may seem very complicated to foreign tourists, but the manner of cooking is quite simple. Every holiday ‘moldovenesht’, which stands for mixed vegetables wrapped in cabbage leaves or minced meat stewed in vegetable broth, is served. The homemade cheese – brynza - is always present on a table. Wine has remained the main celebratory drink for hundreds of years; on holidays owners put up the best table wines, which are also named ‘Krama.’
Local festivals can’t be imagined without the national game ‘trynty.’ Everyone is welcome to compete in the exercise of power; by tradition the winner of the game receives a gift ram. An equally important component of the national celebrations is a collective dance, where everyone can join. The Town Day is one of the most exciting events to take part, especially for travelers.
