1. http://davidsbeenhere.com David’s Been Here is traveling Moldova in search of the country’s top destinations and most memorable travel experiences. In this short video, David brings us to the Romani capital of Moldova: Soroca. A two-hour drive from Chisinau, Soroca is home to the wealthiest community of Roma (or Gypsy) peoples in all of Eastern Europe. Explore the incredible architecture and history of this iconic town (dating back to 1740) with mansion-lined streets, the grand Soroca fortress (dating back to 1499), Candle of Gratitude and so much more. It’s one of the most unique and picturesque towns in all of Moldova, but visitors beware… it gets very cold!! Watch along as David and his guide warm up in the local style at Old Cellar Restaurant- over a hefty shot of Moldoka vodka. It might be strong, but it certainly does the trick! If you’re looking for an unforgettable day trip in Moldova, don’t miss this unique visit to Soroca- you can even catch a glimpse of the Ukrainian border!

In this short clip, David brings us the Holy Trinity Monastery, located in the town of Saharna. A 90-minute drive out from Chisinau, this picturesque monastery is divided into both “new” and “old” parts, dating back to 1495 and 1777, respectively. Home to 16 resident monks, the relics of St. Cuvios Macarie and a “footprint” of St. Maria (on the monastery’s highest cliff), the Holy Trinity Monastery is the biggest religious pilgrimage site in the entire country. Also home to the Rock Cave Church of the Annunciation, follow David through the forest as he brings us to this incredible historic site- founded by Russian Orthodox monks back in 1495.
