We arrived here after a snowy day, but the access was reasonable. The view is nice, with the monastery located near a pond. We took a walk around the church and the monastery. The church was closed. There were no informative panels, so visit was...More

Must see, the space inside and out is wonderful. Bring a guide or read up before you go if you don’t speak romanian or Russian

Great church close to the capital Chisinau. Nice and quite place. I liked the painting inside the new church. They gave us some food for charity.

Very quiet and soothing place. You can be alone with yourself. A very large and ancient monastery. All the buildings are renovated, there is a lot of greenery on the territory and very well-groomed.
