  • ·       Perchiu Hill natural reservation

    Perchiu Hill is a natural reservation situated on the hill with the same name (at the altitude of 398 m), north of Onesti and it is covered with forests characteristic to a forest steppe. Here thermophilic trees and shrubs grow. Overall, in the meadows and forests on the hill Perchiu grow about 600 species of flowering plants, many of which are rare in the country.


     A bright cross-monument, with a height of 30 meters was placed at the point of maximum altitude of 398 meters on Perchiu Hill. The metal ensemble was transported by a military helicopter and assembled through a clever system of levers and pulleys.

    In the spring of 2001 the cross was illuminated for the first time. In the concrete foundation of the monument there is a metal cylinder containing a glass tube, in which there is an official document that those who built the Cross on Perchiu hill hope to be found by the future generations. The document mentions the names of those who brought their contribution to the creation of this cross to guard Onești town.
