The Cave monasteries along the Dnjestr

After a cosy night in the expandable sofa of my hostess I started the engine of my car to head further north along the Djnestr. The first stop was in Saharna - a cave monestary dating form 1495. I drove northwards but wanted to try a shortcut leaving the main road going on gravel trails - suddenly the road became very steep and I just slided with all breaks on with my little car down the hill - luckily I figured out that I had not to go up this hill again - impossible in this muddy conditions - so I finally reached Saharna. The complex is in principle split into four main and one not existing attractions
First - The point where there is a footprint of Maria in the stone where she pointed the place the monestary should be erected - second the new monestary itself - third the basis with cold spring water where you have to submerge to get your wishes fulfilled and the the remains of the cave monestary.
The non-attraction is leading to the to of the valley where the is actually nothing to see but a small monument and cows.
Not to forget - Saharna is also the place of the highest waterfall in Moldova measuring 18 m of height and called Moldova niagara
The cosy sofa ...
