  • 16th century monastery that in 1975 won the famous Golden Apple Award for the quality of its restaurantul.
  • A tourist train powered by a steam locomotive runs 12 kilometers up the Moldovita River from a station near Moldovita Monastery. This narrow gauge forestry line built in 1888 closed in 2001 but was revived by local railway enthusiasts four years later. If you once go to this place then you will feel amazed and don't even what's to go to home back. It will to journey. It an awesome place do visit soon.
