Short history of Razboieni Monastery

Razboieni Monastery was built by Stefan cel Mare in 1496, two decades after the battle from “Valea Alba” Valley. The church is actually a mausoleum, the only one of its kind from Romania, specially built to host the bones of the Moldavian fighters that died for their country fighting with the Turks at Valea Alba Valley.

Over time the church from Razboieni Monastery suffered few interventions, but between 1975 and 1977 it returned to its original shape. The diggings from that period revealed under the stone floor the existence of a thick layer of human bones. On the south wall of the monastery Stefan cel Mare placed a description of the battle from Valea Alba.
