CHURCH "VIRGIN BIRTH" IN ZARNESTI

It was built in 1791, and was organized and developed around the Orthodox cemetery in Zarnesti, being founded by archpriest Bratu Baiul. Due to the increasing of the population of the village, the enlightened priest wanted to organize an Orthodox cemetery and build the church. At that time the cemetery and the church were located on the outskirts of the village.
An ideal location is found on a hill above the river bed Barsa. Through the efforts of past and present priests, the Orthodox cemetery and stylish renovated church, dedicated to the Virgin Birth, gives us a sample of respect for the ancestors of Zarnesti.
