    Museum of popular art in Ivancea village

    by Marisha_V Written Jul 31, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The museum is located inside of the house of the Armenian noble Karp Balioz (19th century heritage). It started its activity in Soviet times from 1984 and presents a permanent exhibition of national Moldavian art. One gallery represents samples of red and black pottery of different shapes from dishes to toys. Wooden objects had a wide and varied use in Moldova in the past, and craftsmen were very well known abroad too. Another gallery shows us in detail craftsmen’s skill in stonework: columns, stone-flowers, chimneys, and others to be found in Orhei and Soroca. Moldavian craftswomen were very good at embroidery and at carpet making. The next gallery is dedicated to the national clothes from different ethnic groups present in Moldova. In the past people were very skilled in leather and horn work. The last gallery presents a collection of musical instruments well known to our national musicians.

    A tower

    by ZiOOlek Written Jan 8, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The tower is located near the Monument and village hall, behind trees when walking the main street. I don't know what it used to be but it looks imposing. Unfortunately, the tower is in not good condition.

    The Monument commemorates these who died between 1941 and 1945. It has a sign wit a sentence: `Nikto Ne Zabit, Nichto Ne Zabito` what means `No-one Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Forgotten`. There are also names of people who died.

    Cemetery

    by ZiOOlek Written Jan 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Orthodox cemeteries look so different from catholic ones than it amazed me much. Of course, like other parts of the village, most crosses at the cemetery are blue. Morover, I could notice tables what seems to be strange. There were benches and tables near groves. It occured that orthodox people bring their food once a year and eat it at the cemetery... The cemetery is located near the church.

    Church

    There is not much to write about the church as I could find any information about it. Anyway, it looks really nice and it attracts from away. When walking the main road you won't miss the church!

    Traditional houses

    by ZiOOlek Updated Jan 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ivancea has fantastic, blue (or sometimes in a shade of violet) houses. The village looks unique in the colour. This makes the atmosphere of the place - especially in the winter, when everything is gray, but not houses which are colourful.

    There is a lake in Ivancea. It is located near the main steet but you can miss it when there is a fog. I could hardly see it. Anyway, there must be really nice views here during summer...

    Wells

    by ZiOOlek Written Jan 7, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wells are a part of Moldavian villages. There are lots of them in Ivancea. People go here to obtain water as they usually have no running water at home. Some of wells are not in use any more...
