  • Nice place.... The Soroca fortress in Moldova is a castle that you must see. It is a castle that is still in a beautiful condition and can be visited inside. You look out over the water to the border with Ukraine there fee to enter about 10lei around.... At first made of wood, and somewhat 50 years later rebuilt in stone as a perfect circle with 5 bastions on the sides.on Monday and Tuesday it is closed
