Căpriana monastery is one of the oldest monasteries of Moldova, mentioned in documents dating back to 1420 and is located in Căpriana, 40 km north-west of Chișinău. Căpriana is situated in a picturesque forested area once called Codrii Lăpușnei. The first significant reference dates from a document issued in 1429 that gave Căpriana the status of royal monastery on behalf of Alexander the Good. The "winter church" shown here was built in 1903. Picture © Credits to David Stanley
