Rudi Monastery

Situated about 200km north of Chisinau, Rudi is one of the most interesting places to visit. One can find here pre-historic remains in a natural, 100m long cave, also an exceptional nature reserve, an ancient headland fortress (IV-III c. BC), two ring-shaped fortresses (IX-XII c.) called “Turkish Plate” and “Germanariu”, and a rural community rich in traditions. But the main object of visit in this area is one of the oldest monasteries in Moldova. The monastery has preserved the traditional monks’ way of life through the centuries and the “Holy Trinity” church built in 1777 is considered to be a representative sample of the old Moldavian religious architectural style. The church is situated in a beautiful natural setting in the valley of river Bulboana.

The monastery can be visited daily.
