DAY TRIPS

Excursion to Comrat and Ceadir-Lunga

We offer you an excursion dedicated to one of the regions of Moldova: “Gagauzia”. This little-known region is located in the south of Moldova. It is populated by the Gagauz, a Turkish-speaking population largely russified and historically close to the Turks of Anatolia. Thus, they speak a Turkish dialect (but also Russian) and they are Orthodox Christians (and not Muslims).

Gagauzia is an autonomous region located in the south of Moldova. Its administrative capital is Comrat, a city of 26,000 inhabitants. They speak mainly Russian and a Turkish dialect.
Historically, Turkish speakers in Bulgaria, the “Gök-oğuz” or Gagauz, were established here in 1812, among the Moldovans, when the Russian Empire annexed Bessarabia.
The Gagauz referred to the sky hence their original name “Gök-oğuz” (etymologically: blue or celestial tribes).

Reservations required 48 hours in advance with our travel agency.

More about this tour

Discover Gagauzia!

Unknown to the general public, this small autonomous territory, located in the south of Moldova, has a very special history. It is the quintessential original destination.

There are about 160,000 people in Gagauzia. Even if local historians have more than 20 different theories about their origins, most of them would come from a Turkish Seljuk tribe called "Oguz". It is said that they were allowed to settle in the region in exchange for their conversion to Christianity in the 18th century.

ulturally the region is therefore surprising because it mixes a strong Ottoman influence and a great attachment to the Slavic world.

The independence question in Gagauzia is very important and thorny. Today having the status of an autonomous region within the Republic of Moldova, it was historically independent in August 1991. Not wanting to join the brand new Moldova, the local political forces, taking advantage of the chaos reigning in Moscow during the fall of the USSR, proclaimed the Republic of Gagauzia. This will never be recognized internationally and negotiations will lead to a simple autonomy in 1994. Thus, nowadays, the question of a new independence comes up every year in the debates.

The linguistic question is essential. You can communicate in three languages in Gagauzia. Russian (the dominant language), Romanian (which is not everywhere welcome) and Turkish (or rather a dialect).
