Curchi’s Monastery

20131019-221125.jpg

Today we discovered another great destination for a day trip from Chisinau, the Monastery in Curchi, which is roughly one-hour drive from Chisinau, a few kilometers past Orhei. The main church was closed for renovation, but another one in the complex was open and beautifully restored. The gardens surrounding the various buildings were extremely well designed and the
sights spectacular. The Monastery is bordering a lake and a forest; after the visit, we took a walk around the lake and in the forest, walking up and down a narrow valley and enjoying the sights. It’s getting chilly but it was a great autumn day in Moldova.
