HINCU Monastery          
 

The Hincu Monastery is situated on the river Coghilnic, 70 km from the capital of Moldova, in a valley, surrounded by hills and secular forest. Founded in 1678, the Convent was one of the richest monasteries on the south of Moldova from the XVIIth century. People come to the Convent in great number and, especially, in the name-day of Saint Paraschiva, celebrated on October 27 (according to the church calendar). The legend about the foundation of convent says that once, one of the eminent courtiers of the XVIIth century, Mihalcea Hincu with his daughter Paraschiva, escaping the Tatar foray, on the one clearing of Codri forest swore to built a monastery at that place if they survive. Mihalcea Hincu kept his word. During the XVIIth c., the wooden churches and cells were many times destroyed by the Tatars' invasions. In hard times the Saint Paraschiva Monastery remained uninhabited. In 1835 a stone summer church was built in Russian- Byzantine style. Later, in 1841, there came a church for the winter season. From 1956 to 1990 the convent was closed by the Soviet authorities, and it functioned as a sanatorium for the Ministry of Health instead. In 1990, at the request of the local population, the Hincu Monastery was reopened, becoming one of the most well arranged and most visited religious communities. A lot of water springs surround the convent, one of them is mineralized. To our days, the Convent pleases the eyes and hearts of believers and visitors.

CAPRIANA Monastery


Capriana Monastery is one of the oldest in Moldova, located 35 km northwest of Chisinau, in the Isnovat locality, on a bank of the river Isnavat. The first official document to contain information about Capriana Monastery is Alexandru cel Bun's royal charter dated April 25, 1420. A royal legacy charter dated February 10, 1429 is the second document to mention the monastery. 

Initially, the monastery was named after Vasnavet, which is a river flowing near the monastery. Later it was renamed Capriana, in honor of Chiprian, who was the first Superior of the monastery. The Grigore Ureche (the chronicler) papers say that Petru Rares, the ruler of Moldova (1527–1538, 1541-1546) built Capriana’s first stone church, the Church of the Virgin's Assumption. 

On June 29, 1940, a day after the conquest of Bessarabia by Soviet troops, the whole estate of the monastery was confiscated. The last abbot of the monastery was the Superior Eugeniu (1952—1962). The last church service was held on October 25, 1962. The monks took refuge in other parishes. The monastery was desecrated and pillaged. In 1962, it was transformed into a sanatorium for sick children. The monastery refectory (dining room) was transformed into a club where dancing and drinking parties and weddings were organized. 

In 1989, at the decision of the Republic of Moldova Council of Ministers, Capriana Monastery once again became a place for religious services. The first abbot of the monastery was Archimandrite Iosif Gargalac, who was the former abbot of the Soruceni Monastery. After the departure of the Abbot Iosif, the monastery was lead by the monk Serafim, who continued the reconstruction of the monastery. From 1994–1997 the refectory of the monastery was restored and transformed into a church for winter services. Reconstruction of the monastery continued until 2007. 

Today, the monastery complex consists out of three churches: Assumption of the Virgin Mary (1545, medieval Moldovan style), St. Nicholas (1840), St. George (1907, late baroque style). The complex also includes the abbot's house, refectory, and monk's cells. The summer church, Assumption of the Virgin Mary, is the oldest one preserved on the territory of Moldova. Metropolitan G. Banulescu-Bodoni is buried here. The monastery also holds the biggest religious library in Moldova, preserved in the monastery along with gifts from different kings. 

Not far from the monastery in the forest there is an oak tree name the Oak of Stephen cel Mare, where he is said to have taken a rest after one of his battles.
