Hello Jennifer, Unfortunately, there is no public transport that will take you directly to Tipova. There are only 2 options to get closer to the Monastery:1. to take the bust from Chisinau from the North Bust station to Rezina or to Saharna but you will have to find your way to the Monastery and this is a big issue since there are no indicators. 2. To take a guide and driver to get secure to Tipova. Will be glad to help!
