  • It is very impressive that a poor country like Moldova so beautifully maintained read to has. Curchi is with the beautiful colors (red/white) worth a visit and gives nice photo shots. Worth mentioning is also the gardens. I was told that it was designed by a landscape architect – everything is very harmonious. An old "masonry" next door can be seen - a very interesting contrast in the geomancy down state. Women should not forget to bring a head scarf, so they can see the Church from the inside.

  • Our tour starts from a medieval house typical of the area that is now a Museum, but being Monday and closed so we are content to see it from outside. From here we climb towards the rock monastery, the walls of some of the cells and chapels have been made more hospitable to decorations, wooden furniture and wall carvings. We descend ladders inside the monastery to see the cells where they slept the monks now housing the only hermit. From the main Chapel we exit out of a rock arch and we find ourselves perched on the plateau. After the visit we head to the new monastery built just ahead.
