Package Itinerary

Route: Chisinau – Orheiul Vechi (the Complex Old Orhei) – Museum Vatici – Curchi Monastery

We start our trip with Orheiul Vechi, a museum complex in the open air, heart of old civilization and millenary history. The micro zone of Orheiul Vechi represents a miraculous combination of geographic framework and human habitat, where the primary landscape organically harmonizes with the cultural one. The originality of Orheiul Vechi’s landscape is due to the defile of the Raut River, dug under the form of a canyon in the limestone strata of the former Sarmatian Sea, about 14 million years ago. Within the museum complex, the meandered course of the Raut forms two fascinating promontories that represent two veritable natural fortresses. As a result, in Orheiul Vechi’s perimeter, were conserved exceptional historical and archaeological vestiges and traditional peasantry architecture form within the actual Butuceni and Trebujeni villages, which gives an allure of uniqueness to the whole complex. Also there you’ll find some guest houses, where you can enjoy the Moldovan traditional food, admiring the breathtaking views.

Next we drive to Vatici, where we will visit the museum “Vatra Strămoșească” (Old Hearth). Hanging at the Vatra Strămoşeasca Museum is a good opportunity to host and travel back in time.

Our last stop will be at Curchi Monastery, which is a place of a rare beauty, due to the orchards and surrounding forests, giving it the green tone, from which the churches and white buildings appear as bright dots. The visitors remain fascinated by the beauty of the place, whose image keeps up deep in their soul long after.
