Putna Monastery was built by Stephen cel Mare in memory of his victory against the Turks (Chilia 1465). The works lasted three years (1466-1469). The tower and the surrounding walls were finished in 1481. In 1650 the monastery church was devastated by the Cossack Timus Khmelnytsky.

Reconstruction works in which the old church materials were incorporated, lasted nine years (1653-1662). The church is made of porch, pronaos, trowel, nave and altar. Inside the golden iconostasis attracts the eyes. It was made by local craftsmen in 1773, made of lime and yew wood.

Destroyed during the battles, the painting was attempted in the XVIII-XIX centuries. In 1972 it started a project to restore the painting, and in 2010 was completed polirea gold. Entering the monastery is under a tiered tower, which can still be seen on the facade of Moldova in 1471.

It is called the Eminescu Tower, because at the Great Putna of Putna in 1871, the poet slept in the upper hall of the tower, built in 1757. The bell tower was built in 1882 and the chapel in 1759, instead of the destroyed by the earthquake of 1739. The chapel frescoes were made between 1980-1984 by Mihail and Gavril Morosan. The only building left since the time of Prince Stephen the Great is the Tower of the Treasure, completed in 1481.

Here, the valuable objects of the monastery were hidden in distress. Important is the tombstone, the tomb room, where we can visit even the tomb of Stefan cel Mare, ruler of Moldavia, between 1457-1504. In the monastery can also visit a museum with international renown.
