The monastery gate

The Assumption Men’s Monastery in Kulivtsi, Zastavna District of Chernivtsi Oblast was established at the place of the wooden Assumption of the Virgin church built in 1789 for the account of Theodore Kautish and Ioann Masenko.

 

The wooden Assumption church and the bell tower have been saved and are architectural monuments of national importance. The church is located in the North-Eastern part of the village on a picturesque mountain of the steep Dniester bank, in the Monastery's territory. The church is domeless, has stone foundation and is reinforced with stone buttresses, consists of three blockhouses. The design is based on the archaic layout of three rectangular blockhouses where the nave is wider than the altar and the gallery. The church has a high sloping roof.

 

To reach the Monastery by car from Chernivtsi, you'll need to cover about 60 km on E85 towards north.

The Assumption church is now covered with plaster
