  • Located in the middle of a forest,Agapia monastery is a priceless treasure of art mainly due to the frescos painted by Nicolae Grigorescu more than 200 years ago.It is also called "the monastery hiden from the world" because of the beautiful mountains and secular trees that surround it. Amazing landscape, amazing atmosphere.
