Historically Moldova lies at the crossroads of major trading routs and today’s visitors can discover many old fortifications dating back to ancient times.
Soroca Fortress built in the Middle Ages at the Nistru river bend was part of a huge Moldovan defensive system. Initially wooden, the fortress was built of stone between 1543-1546 according to the “Golden section” supreme law of harmony that made it unique among the examples of European military architecture. It has a perfect round shape with a diameter of 37,5 m and with 5 equidistant bastions.
