A must visit location when you travel to/through Soroca. This historical structure has been preserved fairly well. It offers great views of the cities' surrounding areas and neighboring Ukraine across the river.
Beautiful fortress rebuilt in 1546 from stone after being made from wood. It survived many wars and is now watching another one in Ukraine, which its land can be seen from it across the river. It's of the the must-see of moldova.
