About
Start the day with a visit to Curchi Monastery, a real pearl of our religious life. Here you'll see several churches, and among them - the "Virgin's Assumption" Cathedral, built by the drawings of genius architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Next stop to the Museum of Handicrafts and National Carpets, which by the way is protected by UNESCO. In the museum, we will see the process of carpet weaving using the old traditional ways. Further drive to the Old Orhei reserve, where you will have the possibility to experience the real village life of Moldova and also photo shooting local people. Don't miss the opportunity to arrange a lunch with a local family in Trebujeni village. In the afternoon we will visit the Open Air Museum Complex, which is "arguably Moldova's most fantastic sight". Here you'll see an Orthodox cave monastery called "St. Maria Dormata" expanded and modified inside the cliffs by the monks over the centuries!

Although I know Moldova and have lived in Orhei for some time, many years ago, I had no idea about this part of it that I visited with Victoria. Honestly, if it weren't for the Victoria guide, I'm sure I wouldn't have been impressed. But now, just because Victoria is an extraordinary, knowledgeable, friendly, proactive guide I liked the tour of Old Orhei, with dinner at the local family. The wine tours are also amazing.
The 50 cents: book trips with Ways Travel. And don't forget Transnistria, it will be a real-time journey in time.

I’m a tour leader and Viorica, from WAYS Travel, used to work with us for Kishineu tours, around Moldova, Transnistria. She is an outstanding guide, knowledgable, friendly, proactive. Tourists love her!!!
Book tours with them. I love their Old Orhei tour with dinner at the local family, Transnistria is time travelling back in time :) Wine tours are amazing. Local bazar visits are fun, and don’t miss cooking classes!
