Holidays & Observances in Moldova
Moldova is an Eastern European country located between Romania and Ukraine. Due to its location, it has been under the control of Russia and the Ottoman Empire for much of its history. It now has a diverse population of many cultures brought together by the almost universal practice of Eastern Orthodox Christianity. Though Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Europe, its people hold on tight to their traditions, including holiday celebrations. Christian holidays are the most important and have many unique traditions. Orthodox Moldovans follow the Julian calendar, so the holidays are celebrated on Julian calendar dates rather than Gregorian calendar dates.
