  • Great place to visit!
  • We came group of 9 tourists from Israel to see this place. The ladies needed to go to the toilet after long ride, because we traveled to see specially this beautiful church . The people in the church, specifically the nun, refused to let the ladies to use the toilet, she sent them to another and far toilet which was closed. They cane back not before one of the lady couldn't hold her self, and after 15 long minutes she sent a...man with the key (!) to the ladies room, and while they were inside he demand 1 Lei... For using the toilet. This not a behavior. Not recommended. They don't deserve that I will publish photos. It was written also in TripAdvisor app.
  • Very peaceful place and the monastery is well preserved
  • Piece of Romanian history.
