Worth visiting if you are in the area Like many European churches decorated with church stuff. You can drive up to it's door and park for free, entrance is free. Make sure you visit the church and the nunnery right across. C U Around

I rarely get over-excited about monasteries and churches ... I have seen enough to last a lifetime, and over time they all blend together. However, i did enjoy my visit to this small but elegant monastery as part of my visit to beautiful Sinaia.
