Hincu Convent symbolizes the inviolability of the Orthodox faith
Many legends are being kept in the ancient woodland – Codri.One of them is linked with the foundation of a beautiful orthodox monument – Hincu convent. They say that in those distant times,the local boyar Michael Hincu with his daughter found the shelter in this forest from Tatars’ pursuit.
Tired travelers stopped for rest at one of the forest glades and Michael Hincu promised to build here a church in case he and his daughter would be able to escape from enemies. And in 1678 the church was constructed.
Nowadays the Hincu Convent symbolizes the inviolability of the Orthodox faith.
