  • After visiting Sinaia we decided to visit this church, located some 40 kilometres away, high in the mountains. The ride up to it is already an experience in itself where we have done about two hours. Like most roads in this part of Romania lacks a crash barriers and road surface here and there is full of holes, while the road through hairpin turns sometimes pretty style up. We reason with a snail's pace up, while you enjoy the beautiful view of this part of Transylvania. Finally we arrived at the monastery and we parked the car along the way. We had expected it was going to be a small cave, but nothing. The cave behind the Church is very big and you can easily spend more than an hour. Throughout the cave run good trails and there where you can find solid steps must be climbed. You must regularly weighed down running to not your head and therefore you need at the beginning of the cave also put a helmet on. That is just as well because the chance of your head shot is great. Through sometimes narrow passageways to get in several large rooms and everywhere there are information boards that tell you the history of this cave. There is even a small waterfall in this cave. After a few kilometres, wander through this magnificent cave we end up back at the entrance and we visit the Church that in the entrance of the cave. This Orthodox Church may be small, but he is wonderful to see. The entire inside is equipped with beautiful frescoes and paintings of scenes from the Bible, in which hell is pictured prominently. Also here you will look your eyes out. After more than two and a half hours we finally left this complex and we are again a very nice experience. The cave, the Church and also the ride up to it make this visit 1 of the highlights of our holiday in Romania and if you're in the area, this is definitely a must to visit.

  • Entrance to the cave is at the same time, the entrance to the monastery. After paying the ticket, you have to put the helmet, just me unless I have too a big head, because my size was not. Interesting fact is that never once stuknąłem in the head, and a colleague, who slammed his helmet seven times ... hmmmm ... After going through the narrow corridors is to "Bear Cave"-a lot of room, just do not know where the name ... any remains of bears were not there-might come only on guest appearances. As I have already written forms do not blow us away, but it was very nicely ... At the end of the cave, a small waterfall ... and the way back. And there's a surprise: With sunny weather in half an hour is not nothing. On the outside was a monstrous CloudBook. There was a chance to go out, and in fact would not have done this no one sane. It was a monstrous thunderstorm and wichurą! One of the Lightning has landed in the rocks above the entrance to the cave and resulted in their obsypanie ... Huk unmerciful-the more that all fell on a tin roof ... and straight in a place where even a moment before I became ... Fajnoza. ...
