Chisinau has a number of sites to see, but this is clearly the best maintained and most picturesque of what I saw. Open to the public and no charge for admission, it is on the short list of should not miss when visiting Chisinau.

I really like this Monastery and Orthodox Church in the outskirts of Chisinau. The colour, golden roofs and interior design including great frescoes is great and I really recommend the visit specially on Sunday when the main liturgy is going on

Small church that is cute inside, but nothing else to see there. There's a courtyard with a small open air altar. I was a bit disappointed after reading previous reviews as I didn't find it that interesting.

Very nice church. When we entered to Tiron church in the late afternoon, there was a ritual inside. When you want to come to Chisinau, you must visit St Theodor Tiron church definitely. It has also a big garden. You can feel the tranquility here.
