This monument is a Soviet era one that has been repurposed into a religious chapel. You can see the tower from both sides of the Dniester river and most of the city of Soroca. You can get to it in one of two ways: the usual one of climbing a few hundred uneven and ill repaired concrete stairs or the less used driving up the back of the hill. Guess which we took. We managed to go on a beautiful day and to see the countryside, including livestock, on both sides of the river.
