|Points of interest|
Moldavia is a geographic and historical region and former principality in Eastern Europe, corresponding to the territory between the Eastern Carpathians and the Dniester river. An initially independent and later autonomous state, it existed from the 14th century to 1859, when it united with Wallachia as the basis of the modern Romanian state.
Moldavia served as the central setting for the 1960 film Black Sunday. In the early 17th century, Kriavi Vajda, second son of the House of Vajda and grand inquisitor of the Holy Inquisition sentenced his sister the Princess Asa and her lover Igor Javutich to death for the crime of vampirism and witchcraft. The inquisitors affixed the Mask of Satan to their faces and burned them at the stake. Exactly one-hundred years later, on St. George's Day, an earthquake destroyed the chapel where Asa was buried. Asa's tomb had been found split open. That same evening, her descendent Princess Marsha mysteriously died. Marsha was the spitting image of Princess Asa. One-hundred years later, Princess Asa and Igor Javutich rose from the dead to gain vengeance against the Vajda family. Igor killed the family patriarch Prince Vajda as well as his heir Constantine Vajda while Asa attempted to take possession of the prince's daughter Katia Vajda. A young doctor named Andre Gorobec succeeded in defeating Asa and Igor and rescued Katia.
