  • Went with an excursion to the monastery, the added bonus were the wonderful landscapes. The place is very beautiful, nice to just walk around the area. Of the attractions most impressed the old monastery, carved into the rocks. He still inhabited! I agree that it is best to visit in good weather.

  • If you are tired of wine cellars-you can spend half day at this wonderful place. Go from Chisinau for about an hour. The rock Paleo-Christian monastery in scenic surroundings. A ride costs only in good weather. In the nearby village-good restaurants with local cuisine. Recommend.

  • The complex is situated approximately 50 km from Chisinau and is available on the basis of individual tours in Chisinau together with a visit to the monastery curchi, Chateau Vartelli, etc. Monastery is located high above the river and its buildings slowly opened as lifting the flat road from parking places. Magnificent landscape overlooking the steep mountain ridge above the river. Great impressions leave Interior and cells, dug deep in the mountains. Close to the monastery is situated the village with many restaurants, Moldavia, decorated in national style with a large set of Moldavian dishes
