The Hincu Monastery

Here are just a few shots I made during a visit to the Hincu Monastery, about 5 miles from my parent's village (I mean, the village where they were born and where we have a country house). There isn't much I can tell about this monastery, except that it was transformed into a sanatorium during the Soviet regime. The Monastery is very beautiful and is bound to become even more impressive when the construction of a new cathedral has been completed. The place is about 50 km outside Chisinau down the "Poltava Highway".
