Putna, included on Unesco's list of world heritage monuments, is the first of several monasteries founded by Stephen the Great.
The story says that Stephen went to the top of a hill and shot an arrow saying that wherever it fell the church would be built. A section of the tree trunk containing the arrow is still kept in the monastery museum. This monastic museum is famous for its precious objects from Stephen's time: embroideries, silver and lether objects, tapestries, manuscripts, paintings, sculptures.
At about 2 kms of Putna monastery there is Daniil Sihastrul's cave (he was known as Stephen confessor).
