Soroca fortress is one of the most outstanding tourist attractions in the Republic of Moldova. It is located in a small Moldovan town (bearing the same name) close to the Ukrainian border. The famous landmark of Soroca town is a well-preserved Middle Age fortress with stout stone walls right down by the riverside, intended to daunt unwelcome guests. It used to be part of a rather complex and important defensive system, which comprised 4 fortresses along the Nistru (Dniester) river in the East, 2 on the bank of Danube in the South, and three more to protect the North.Soroca fortress is the only medieval monument of Moldova that has been preserved entirely as it was designed by its builders. The Soroca Fortress is obviously something that local people are proud of.
