Monasteries tour

About Tour

Bessarabia – former part of Moldavian Principality, was taken by the Russian Empire first time in 1812, and a strong influence came from Russian Orthodox Church. The Church was used by the Russians to russificate the local population, as Romanian language was forbidden to be used for religious services. As a result, even today we have 2 Metropolis in Republic of Moldova, one under the Russian, and another under the Romanian Patriarchy. We will visit many monasteries, most of them not so known, but each of them having something interesting to show, cave churches/monasteries, original Russian orthodox monasteries, Romanian monasteries changed into Russian ones, old believers monastery etc. And the most important we will have local contact, with people, monks and nuns, free and open discussions with high hierarchy people from both churches. It will be an interesting trip, may be not so impressive from art and history point of view , but for sure extremely impressive from the experience we will have interacting with local people and people from these monasteries

Cristina,

Thanks for providing a wonderful holiday. Your knowledge of your country and languages is incredible. I have enjoyed every minute! Best wishes to you and your family, Bob.

Hi, Natalia! I contact you in order to thank you for your help, guidance & company while i was in your country. I will have to say, i did particularly love being with you, on those 2 trips i made. If you don’t mind me saying so, i think you are a lovely & charming person, and it was a great pleasure for me to meet you.

Natalia is an excellent guide, full of interesting information about the places we went, recommended a very good hotel, a good van and driver. She is everything else you want/expect from a tour guide, and she was also a hard-working, intelligent and caring member of our team. Without her skills, flexibility and perseverance, our trip would not have been as successful as it was. She really cares about her clients, and has the willingness and ability to make whatever needs to happen, happen. She was great!
