Monastery Vărzărești

Nisporeni, Moldova

The Monastery VărșăreÈ™ti is the oldest hearth of praying situated in the area between the Dniestr and Prut rivers and founded by Stan Vărzari squire. It is located at 70 km from the ChiÈ™inău city. Oficially the monastery was documented in 1420, April 25 in a note issued by Alexandru Voevod. VărzăreÈ™ti Monastery is unique in its way because it keeps alive the memory and spirit of the times gone by: sanctum built by the end of XIX century-XX century. This monastery is very important  and attractive as well as because of the groin hosts underworking Icon Miracle of Virgin Mary known as „de la VărzăreÈ™ti”, a small part of the wood from the Holy Cross and many bits of relics of the saints.
