A very old monastery with a lot of connection with the Romanian history. The tomb of one of the most important Romanian politicians is here. There is an old church and the new one better known from post cards. It is a very peaceful place...More

This is a beautiful place to visit for relaxation. Definitely recommend a visit at the old church and new church, very good for the soul. You can also find a bit of history here, as a prime ministers tomb is hidden in the old chuch.

I visited the monastery on the way to Peles Castle. I could say that the monastery completes the painting of Sinaia. The beautiful, sculpted pillars were built in the Brancovan style by the Cantacuzino family. Although the unnamed would say that it bears the name...More

A small and peaceful place, particularly after the sheer melee of Peles Castle. The old and new orthodox churches are beautiful, particularly the smaller old church in the quadrangle, now no longer used for worship. Worth a visit.

The monastery site houses a number of interesting buildings including the bell tower and the old church. It is in very good condition. The inside of the monastery is decorated with many frescoes.

This is a beautiful place, you can visit the monastery or just the church (which is free) plus there is a souvenir shop which has the most amazing prices. I recommend you to visit this religious place when in Sinaia.

This was a very worthwhile stop on our way to Brassov from Bucharest. The highlight for me was the Biserica Veche" (The Old Church), dating from 1695. It is known for its wonderful wall paintings that were just finished restoring in 2016.
