  • Quiet place and nice people
  • Beautiful monastery resembling a botanical garden. Very well maintained. Some paintings are made by Nicolae Grigorescu, a famous Romanian painter.
  • The place gives you that close to God feeling. The nuns keep it clean and beatiful and peaceful. The entrance was 4 lei for person and we got to see the chuch painted by Nicolae Grigorescu, the museum with historical and religious things and paintings including original paintings of Nicolae Grigorescu. You can also find there the Memorial House of Alexandru Vlahuta. The place is a piece of heaven.
  • Great place
  • Very nice place. We climbed to the old monastery 2 Km to the mountain.
