The museum complex Old Orhei is a system of historical monuments and natural landscapes. It consists of a few promontories. The central promontory in Old Orhei is called Pestere.

The Butuceni promontory is great from both the geological and esthetic points. It has many calcareous slates, spacious caves and small grottos. The wonderful view and ancient traces are impressive. There is an unique monastery inside of a rock over the Reut river. The monastery was discovered in 1821, when the residents of Butuceni settlement cut a 20-metre corridor in the rock and found themselves inside a church. The walls of the monastery are always cool even when it is hot outside.  Nowadays the Butuceni hermitage makes a part of one national park and historical complex Old Orhei.
