Nice Russian orthodox church- apparently this one continued operating through soviet times. The interior is original but the exterior has been renovated. The gold domes stand out in the surrounds. It's a great place for a short visit.

Wow this is stunning. The most beautiful church I've seen apart from st basils. Absolutely loved it. There were weddings happening there at the time too. A must see place in Chisinau

Chisinau does not have as many churches as other Eastern European capitals do so when walking the streets of Chisinau, St. Theodor Tiron Convent really stands out from the crowd. The church is maybe 1-1,5 kilometres from the central railway station.

Stunning little church in the middle of the city. Free to enter and absolutely beautiful inside. Worth going back in the evening as lit up really well at night.

Chisinau has a number of sites to see, but this is clearly the best maintained and most picturesque of what I saw. Open to the public and no charge for admission, it is on the short list of should not miss when visiting Chisinau.
