Traditional Moldovan Pottery On Display At National Fair

Artisans from all over Moldova are taking part in the 25th National Pottery Fair in the village of Iurceni in the Nisporeni region. The fair includes a competition to name this year's master ceramicist. Visitors are able to enjoy traditional music and dance and to sample Moldovan specialties like sarmale -- a dish of stuffed cabbage or grape leaves. Photos by RFE/RL's Moldovan Service.
