Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best monastery from Bucovina. Very well preserved and most of all very well organised, clean, and you can see the hand from the nuns. Quiet and excelent for meditation. We didnt see the museum, it was closed, but you can buy sweets: sirup and marmelade and its better than all the bracelets or other made in china souvenirs

A lot of tourists come here, try to go early in the morning. The beautiful church was painted by the famous Nicolae Grigorescu, so it is completely different compared to all the others in the region. Full of flowers everywhere

A complete self-satisfactory monastery where you can find Museum, bakery, food production...
Here you can get an impression of how monarchs and noons are living. The church is small but very well decorated in orthodox style.

In October of 1987 I first came up the road to see Agapia, and this last visit was even better than the first. We were treated to meeting several of the nuns and able to see them work their arts on tapestries and rugs. They showed us their crafts and beautiful grounds and also their dedication to their faith and each other. We had a wonderful meal of fresh food and veggies in the communal dining room which also opened to a view of the surrounding forested hills.Take the time to visit and meet these wonderful serene people.

The monastery strikes by the multitude of flowers in the garden which you find in various colors. Must visit!

Lovely little place. It was so colourful with the profusion of flowers. We visited the house of Alexandru P - that was not really worth visiting, however it was very interesting to see the houses where some of the nuns lived on the way. It must be lovely living here. Again, the gardens were immaculately tended and very colourful. There was a substantial museum which was quite interesting. The interior of the church was very beautiful.

Agapia Monastery is one the most important Orthodox nuns convent in Romania, initially built between 1641-1643 and later expanded. The monastery is famous around the world due to its interior frescoes painted in 1858 by the great Romanian painter Nicolae Grigorescu (one of the founders of modern Romanian painting).
The monastery's beauty, peace of mind and serenity can be sensed by the people visiting it. All the flowers, paintings, carpets, and books made by the nuns support those feelings of being into a real oasis of tranquility.
The Agapia Monastery complex is a true architectural jewel, combining the characteristics of the Byzantine style with Neoclassic and Romanian style. The monastery's museum has a collection of medieval art, religious objects and a library with old books and manuscripts.

Access is easy, by car, the road has recently been upgraded. There is no charge for parking or access to the monastery. The inner courtyard is full of brightly colored flowers, so everything impresses you from the beginning.
The interior of the monastery is absolutely superb, it is clean and well preserved. The paintings were made by Nicolae Grigorescu, one of the most important Romanian painters. In fact, the icon of St. Daniil, painted in the north, is a self-portrait.
It is absolutely incomprehensible why to take photos inside the monastery is forbidden. Tourists could promote this touristic objective more effectively.

It was quite a disappointment- maybe because it was a Sunday there was no sign of any of the Nuns- so we walked around and left
