  • On the outside it is very beautiful because it is made of wood and by the sense of ancient. We entered the courtyard but two women told us it was only visited with Mass which on Saturday is at 3pm. Outside it is full of flowers and there are also bells.

  • The wooden church "Saint Nicholas" in Soloneţ is an orthodox cult built in 1781 in the village of Soloneţ in Todireştieşti in Suceava County. The religious Edifa is located in the village cemetery and has the Saint Nicholas patron, celebrated on December 6th. The wooden church of Soloneţ was included in the list of historical monuments in Suceava County from 2015 to 429, with the classification code SV-II-M-B-05648. 1 Church History The village of Soloneţ is located on hilly terrain, crossed by the Soloneţ River, a tributary of the Suceava River in Romania. It is about 20 km away from the city of Suceava. Tradition records the existence of several churches in the Soloneet. A first wooden church would have been built in the meadow of the Soloneţ River, which was displaced in the aftermath of the tartare-born valleys. On the occasion of such a swoon, the villagers would have thrown the church bells in the fountain to not be captured by the Tatars. [2] Another church is mentioned in the uricul of 15 March 1490 for the formation of the diocese of Rădăuţi, being recorded "a 38-a church with King on the Soloneţ, at Vlad Negru". [3] The first documentary record of the village takes place on 17 January 1517, which is a long village of Boieresc. According to the parish's Chronics and the work "Monografia Soloneţ commune" (Bucharest, 1937) of Constantin Milici, the current wooden church in Soloneţ was built in 1781, with its founder being Diamand and Ecaterina Grebencea, also helped by the inhabitants Village. [4] At the top of the church entrance portal there is a kitten with Slavonic characters with the following: "Let them know when the church built this pre-name (LE) of the Holy Hierarcho N (i) Colae of Poro (N) as Too holy (its Of the father of the file, Bishop of Rădăuţi, in the year 1781, November 7 ". About the age of the church evidenced a mark on an Octoih printed in the Râmnic in 1776: "Let it be known that this particular book, Octaih, is bought together with other specific books a Triod, a Penticostar, a liturgy, a small psalm, a Catavasier with Greek, Russian Tri, Romanian bought by the village of Soloneţu, together with the village of Todireşti, at the church of Soloneţ, where the Saint Nicholas ' patron is celebrated... ". 5 In the NINETEENTH century, some changes were made: Next to the entrance on the south side, a wooden porch has been added over which the roof of the church has been extended; the emptiness of the passage from the the pronaos into the naos was enlarged; the windows were enlarged; the inner walls were plasters. Subsequently, the original shingle cover was replaced by one of the blackboard. In the year 1987, in the vicinity of the wooden church, towards the north, a church of the wall was built with the "assumption of the mother of God".
