Curchi Monastery is a monastery of monks from the Republic of Moldova, one of the most important monuments of the local architecture. Built in the 18th-19th centuries, in the Neo-Roman style, the monastery is located in Codrii Orheiului (woods of Orhei). The architectural complex is composed of five churches, two buildings with cells, the Priory building, several auxiliary rooms, an orchard, a hermitage with rooms for guests, and a stone basin. The whole ensemble is surrounded by a stone wall. The monastery’s cathedral was built after a project of an Italian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Made in Baroque style, it is the highest cathedral in Moldova – the middle dome of 57 meters. It is a twin building with Saint Andrew’s Church in Kiev.
