(0 votes)


  CURCHI MONASTERY is one of the most important architectural monuments of BESSARABIA, and it is also considered to be one of the most beautiful and famous monasteries of the region.
    It is located in ORHEI forest near CURCHI village, approximately 14 km southwest of the town of ORHEI, between rich hills covered with forests, gardens and orchards.
    The monastery has a rich religious and cultural past spanning more than two centuries. It was founded in 1773-1775 and became one of the richest, most beautiful, and largest monasteries in 
BESSARABIA.
     From 1959-1995 the monastery was used as a psychiatric hospital. During this time, some repairs were made in 1993, but it was largely neglected until 1999.
