  • Only Byzantine style monastery from across Romania, the Cozia Monastery was built by the ruler Mircea cel Batran, between 1386 and 1388, in the Valley of the Olt River, and its frescoes were painted between 1390 and 1931. The appearance of the Church was modified, in 1517, and again in 1707, when it was added a porch and a new font. In another of the various interventions that had been incorporated two chapels, one being of 1583 and another, built with bricks, which includes two houses and a domed Tower, dating from 1710-1711. It has a Museum, where ancient manuscripts, embroidery and objects of worship. Nice place, but that "tercerizou" the bathroom, which is the other lada of the road, whose price was 1 lev. I was just a little clean.

  • Male a monastery open to visitation. It is located in the mountains and is located on the banks of the beautiful river. It is open to all comers free of charge. You can stroll along the River, in the Park, go to church, walk along the cells of monks. Photographing free too, but you don't need to take pictures of monks. Beautiful place, it oŝuŝâetsâ calm and appeasement.

  • A wonderful place for its spiritual value, the beautiful natural scenery and the historical treasure that is found here
  • A place where history meets faith!
  • Located in Calimanesti, it was built 600 years ago. Lots of great accomodations.
  • Come and discovery one of the greatest monastery in the world. Still unspoilt area.
  • One very important local landmark, it's certainly worth a visit, but it's extremely crowded on the weekends.
