Near Orhei is the Capriana Monastery, an ancient settlement along the Reut River surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards. The monks lived in caves carved high into the limestone cliffs overlooking the river. Inside some of the caves you'll see old graffiti—it was scribbled by Cossacks and Tartars who passed through the region in the 18th century. 40 mi/65 km north of Chisinau.
