Putna Monastery
The emblem of Moldavia, an auroch's head with the sun between its horns and the moon and stars either side, rest above the entrance to Putna Monastery. Behind the monastery is the Putna museum where a wealth of treasures from the monastery and surrounding regions are displayed, including the Holy Book that Stephen the Great carried when he went to battle.
