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.

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.
