Package Itinerary

Moldova is a country of monasteries and churches. The small territory of the Republic of Moldova has a big number and a high concentration of orthodox Christian monastic settlements as comparable to Mount Athos in Greece and Moldovan sub-Carpathians and Bucovina in Romania.

Currently, in the Republic of Moldova, there are 65 monastic places, of which 61 monasteries and 4 sketes, forming a Christian orthodox network throughout the country. Each monastery or church has bells because the bells constitute an integral part of Christian worship since ancient times.

Besides the wooden chop with its various forms, in Christian worship, the bells are used as a notification tool of the church service beginning or as a marking tool of important moments. The church bells give a liturgical measure to the time filling it with importance. Putting the bells makes a man get out of the daily routine, into a reality beyond that which falls under the senses.

Participation in this trip gives you the opportunity to learn the significance of the bells, their history, and of course the significance of the bell rings. You will necessarily participate in a master class given by a professional bell ringer.
