Walk from one monastery to another and enjoy trying a local wine!


We will try to capture wonderful places in two steps from Iasi. We will visit the two Cetatuia and Hlincea Monasteries not far apart, each with a history that deserves to be known. Set on a hill overlooking the valley of the Nicolina River and the Nicolina district of Iasi and from where you can see a beautiful panorama of the city, Cetatuia Monastery dominates the landscape through its slender silhouette, guarded by an imposing tower and surrounded by a stone wall milled by weather. Cetatuia Monastery is also known for its liturgical or manorial wine, which is an opportunity to see the wine cellar, as well as a wine tasting.
Then the road to Cetatuia Monastery and then to Hlincea Monastery will be on foot, we will pass through a forest, see the vegetation, and possibly the local fauna.
