Sister cities of Strășeni

Străşeni (Romanian pronunciation: [strəˈʃenʲ]) is a city of about 20,000 inhabitants in central Moldova, the administrative center of Străşeni District. The city administers one village, Făgureni. There are several legends about its name. One tells that the name of the region is derived from straşnic, a Romanian adjective that can mean "terrible", "frightening", and the story goes that in former times this region was covered by a fearsome forest.

Nowadays, Străşeni is famous for its wine. The Străşeni vineyard, 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) west of Chişinău, is renowned for its sparkling white wines. A little farther north is the Romanesti winery, one of the largest locally and the one-time leading producer of wines in the USSR. One of its more famous products is a Bordeaux-type red.
