  • 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

  • Probably the most spectacular site in the country! If you have little time to spend in this country, it is here that we must go! Everything is there, churches carved into the rock, monasteries, typical houses, etc... The landscape carved by the river Raut is beautiful, the points of view breathtaking. True, the place is not easy to get, but if you make the effort to go there, you never forget this moment. Try to get there just before the sunset, it's even more beautiful!
