Beautiful architecture of the churches. One of the churches was built in 1937. The inside of the churches are magnificent. The gardens were also well kept. Would recommend visiting it if time permits.

Moldovas number one monastery, newly renovated. Fabulous details in great surroundings. Good for photography. If the guards say no to photo, monks give permission. ( I didn't had any problems). Lady's need to cover their head, so take a scarf with you.

The positioning is very good, not far from Chisinau. Nice nature, friendly people. There were too much people in the day, it was on Sunday, but I think it is better to visit this place during the week.
