“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Our colleagues and I took this trip through a private travel guide contacted through our hotel. The monastery is located about 40 km. from Chisinau and passing by some beautiful country landscape dottet with vineyards. The monastery itself is located in a valley and we stopped on top of a hill to enjoy the scenery surrounding the monastery. The view was breathtaking and the soft cool breeze on a warm day in May heightened the impression.

The grounds and the buildings are well kept and in entering the church, there was a service going on and the beautiful and almost heavenly sound of a men's choir singing completed this incredible experience. It was one of those moments, when business travel has its rewards - when I have time to enjoy what the land I am visiting has to offer in terms of attraction.

The tour costed 30 euros each for 4 people and took 3 hours. Do not miss visiting this place if you have time to spare in Chisinau.
