Very nice place to visit specially for those who can value the christian and not only history of the place. It really awes with its wall paintings, the colors, the Technic and the surrounding of the village and the mountains.

It is always open, calm and with friendly staff. Everytime we come here, we visit the monastery to light candles, buy insence and cool down .

A oasis of peace and silence.A visit here before Christmas cleans your mind and prepares you to welcome the holly day when Christ was born.And it's a lesson of history too.

It's a calm place and beautiful church. It's not so big but location is good and attractive . You can plan it if you are heading towards transelvelnia.

The history behind this monestary is interesting, as is the contrast between the old and the new. You can reach on foot but a bit of an uphill walk, ideal if you have a car. Worth a visit

Small monastery, really quick to make the tour, nothing really special though. Only interesting thing is paintings, really middle aged style although pretty recent

Beautiful monastery with outstanding old and new churches. The paintings in the old church are so beautiful and worth seeing if you don't plan on traveling around Romania looking at churches. It's convenient to stop here on your way to Peles and Bran Castles.

I particularly liked the old church. They also host the grave of Take Ionescu, one of the greatest Romanian prime-ministers. It's good place to sit and meditate for a while, especially in a nice sunny day.

Really amazed with the painting inside the church. Perhaps more details and leaflet in multiple languages about the monastery would make the experience better
