Tvardiţa (Bulgarian: Твърдица, Tvarditsa) is a town in Taraclia district, Moldova. It was founded following the Russo-Turkish War (1828–1829) by Bulgarian refugees from Tvarditsa, a town just south of the Balkan Mountains, and the surrounding region. The local Bulgarian population forms part of the larger group of Bessarabian Bulgarians.
Previously a commune, Tvardiţa was declared a town in 2013.
