Photographer's Note

After my tour of Milestii Mica winery, my bus stopped at this monastery about 40 minutes later. There are no shots of it on Trek Earth, but I did discover a few other nice monasteries in the Chisinau area I wasn't aware of before, such as Ciuflea, Hancu, Curchi, and the Soroca Fortress.

I tried lateral thinking searching for biserica, nunnery, convent, monastery, church etc but no luck. I might try again tomorrow. It's in the Chisinau area.

Found it! It is the St George the Martyr Monastery in Strada Schitului 1/9, Suruceni Village, Chisinau, dating from 1785 AD. It is incorrectly shown as the Monastery of the Holy Sepulchre of Jesus Christ in Google Maps.
