Soroca

Yesterday I went to Soroca! Soroca is located in the North of Moldova, and is right on the Dniester river. This city is famous for its fortress, however unfortunately it is under construction (and has been for a while), so we were unable to go in.

Instead, we hiked up a small hill to see “The Candle of Gratitude” monument, which was very impressive. In addition, we had lunch near the Dniester River, as well as saw some Romani architecture. Interesting Fact: This city is popularly known as the “Romani capital of Moldova.”
