The archaeological complex Old Orhei is an open-air museum situated between the villages Trebujeni and Butuceni 60 km North East from Chisinau.
This territory was peopled from the early times. At this place were established many cities. The first city established here was called Orhei. The name Orhei means “fortification”. Then at the beginning of XIV century the Golden Horde conquered this territory. The oriental city called Shehr al-Cedid was built here. Shehr al-Cedid is translated as “New City”. At the middle of XIV century this town disappears. A new town Orhei appears at this place. At the middle of XVI century Orhei inhabitants moved 18 km to the North. Later there's established a new city with the name Orhei. The name of archaeological reservation derives from the name of that medieval city Orhei which became referred to as «Old Orhei».
