Noul Neamţ (Romanian; Russian: Ново-Нямецкий, Novo-Nyametsky) is an all-male monastery located in Chiţcani, near Tighina, geographically in Basarabia but controlled by the breakaway Transnistrian authorities. It is also known as Mănastirea Chiţcani (Russian: Kitskani Monastery), and it is the biggest religious complex under the control of Transnistrian authorities.
The monastery was founded in 1861, when several monks from the Neamţ monastery in Romania left and founded Noul-Neamţ in Chiţcani. The founding of the new monastery was a protest against the measures taken in Romania to confiscate monastery estates and forbid the usage of Slavonic language in worship.
On 16 May 1962 Soviet authorities closed the monastery; the buildings became a hospital.
The monastery church was reopened in 1989, followed in 1991 by the Romanian-language school for Orthodox priests.
