Rural and religious tour in Orhei region
Start the day with a visit to Curchi Monastery, a real pearl of our religious life. Here you'll see several churches, and among them - the "Virgin's Assumption" Cathedral, built by the drawings of genius architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli.
Next stop to the Museum of Handicrafts and National Carpets, which by the way is protected by UNESCO. In the museum, we will see the process of carpet weaving using the old traditional ways.
Further drive to the Old Orhei reserve, where you will have the possibility to experience the real village life of Moldova and also photo shooting local people. Don't miss the opportunity to arrange a lunch with a local family in Trebujeni village.
In the afternoon we will visit the Open Air Museum Complex, which is "arguably Moldova's most fantastic sight". Here you'll see an Orthodox cave monastery called "St. Maria Dormata" expanded and modified inside the cliffs by the monks over the centuries!
