    People Hole

    by Lion_Beat Written Aug 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Could you try to pass through this hole? And there is not only one like this to pass, and even smaller on your way to the sacre room in rock.
    It is believed that once you passed throught 3 of these holes (and believe me it's not so easy) you will be forgiven all your sins by God.
    The hard part comes when you have to come back, and you cannot figure out how did you get in!

    Eating in the Night.. exchanging glasses!

    by Lion_Beat Written Aug 13, 2003

    No restaurants here!
    You'll have to cook for yourself or bring something to eat with you - you choose.
    Although cooking in such a place can be quite a fun...

    Favorite Dish: I remember (in the picture) we cooked some kind of potatoes with meat in that evening, and it was so delicious! We couldn't understand why!?
    We found out after eating. In the hot pot (I don't know how) the "termites" managed to enter, and I guess they gave a special taste to the meal!

Tipova Warnings and Dangers

    Tipova Road

    by Lion_Beat Written Aug 13, 2003

    I heard some people felt down from the rock, and some of them are dead or invalides for life!
    So, if you walking on the small road, like the one from the picture (actually this one is big) you can fall down pretty easy, because the grass which grow near to the road is not on the land already - it's in the air! So before steping somewhere be sure there is land you steping on!

    Fishing

    by Lion_Beat Written Aug 13, 2003

    Try to do some fishing while there. After all when you'll get the chance to fish on The Nistru River, in such a beatiful place... and on the other side of the river are russian occupational illegal forces (exciting)!

    Equipment: Fishing on the river requires special equipment, but you can decide for yourself! After all the important thing is "fishing", but if you manage to catch something - you'll get yourself a dinner!
