Great view

The monastery offers great view over Orsova and the Danube. It worths a stop of 30 minutes. The architecture is also interesting.

Located on the hill top, accessible by car (free parking just at the entrance), the monastery stands out from other similar ecumenical places by its spectacular view - from a veranda which surrounds the exterior of the church - over the town and the river. Besides this and the tranquility of the place, there is nothing special from a touristic... More

We visited the Monastery and walked the grounds on a Saturday. The gardens are so well kept and the Monastery is a lovely example of traditional Romanian architecture. We enjoyed an opportunity to spend some quiet time here.

A very nice place: quiet with a splendid view over the Danube Valley towards Orsova. Access by car is made by a narrow and steep road. There is a parking there. It's free to visit. Aside from the Danube view, there is an interesting aspect of the monastery: it has a very cozy wooden veranda that surrounds the church. From... More

A long, steep winding road up from the town is worth the climb to find this stunning building with a peaceful garden, beautiful wall paintings and view along the Danube.

This Monastery (although we might otherwise here call it a nunnery) in in the wooded hillside, high above Orsova in Mehedinti County, Romania. It would be a very tiring walk, so I would say a car is needed to reach it. The views from it are wonderful, of the mountainous hillsides and River Danube and the monastery itself has wonderful...

You can get there by car, on the road. It is a big monastic complex near the Danube shore, with a nice church and a big shop with souvenirs , church objects and books. From that height you have a beautiful view around. It is built in a forest on that mountain.

Located on a hill overlooking the city of Orsova it could be a nice visit. The church is made of wood and has an U shape, along with the nuns chambers. The terrace offers a relaxing view of the city and the gulf. If you took the time and got there, you should take another five minutes and walk up... More
