I red about this place among other strange places in Romania and decided to see it. Today it happened.
The cave is carved into the hill and has two chambers with drawings on walls.
You can feel the energy when entering the cave. And, by the way, it is free entrance, between 9 and 20 in summer and 9 to 18 from october! So you can go inside and pray or sit outside on a bench and meditate. Nearby is a spring with cristal clear water which will ease your thirst!
I spent over 2 hours there. It was amazing. I plan to go again tomorrow, on my way to Bucharest!
For all of you who want to sit quietly in a holly place and think about what should we do with our life, I say go to Cave in Sinca Veche!

An ancient cave church (about 7000 years old) which is believed that has great spiritual power surrounded by nature with a little traditional monastery on top of the hill.
Old people say that can change your destiny three days in an year if you go here.
I saw here a nice spiritual space, beautiful monastery house, great place to take photos.

Quite an event finding it when you are driving alone but part of the fun getting directions! Not a lot of visitors so you have peace and quite - nice. Make sure you take time to walk all around to the old cave monestery, paths/ trails, grotto, new monastery

Based on its naming I was expecting to see wall paintings and engravings, but this was not the case. There are like 4 areas, that are refered to as indivudual churches. The hill and the surroundings are worth visiting, but it is really crowded. For sure there are better things to do around, i prefer the great plains.

Very interesting spot in the Transylvanian countryside. The interior of the cave is small and largely fenced off but a worthwhile visit for any history lovers. Beautiful green space outside with a small church up a short ascent. Very good place for reflection - I visited mid-morning with a guide and there were virtually no tourists.

A quiet, beautiful and relaxing place, far away from any kind of stress. Zen, peace, inner stillness. Couldn’t believe there still exist such places.

We were here on a day trip. We also had a guide who told us about the history of the village and of the monastery. It was very interesting. We were able to visit the old monastery and the new one, buy some souvenirs. The view from up, where the new church is, it is absolutely beautiful.

Sinca Veche, also called Romanians Stonehenge, situated in the Brasov region at the foot of the Fagaras Mountains. Is a cave or temple cut out of chalk. Before it was consecrated by Christians it was a prehistoric temple which is around 7.000 years old with even earlier Dacian origins. You enter it through a tunnel cut from the chalk and the light enters from above through a hole in the chalk. The Star of David is carved on the wall and inside it has the yin and yang symbols and many other symbols. The temple is also known as ’’The Temple of Fulfillement, Wishes, Fate etc.''
The place is totally worth to go to…the place is filled with extraordinary peace, sense of spirituality, mystery and a lot of powerful energy. I loved it and I really recommend it!

Ancient place with positive energy, placed on 40 km from Bran. The road to this place is very nice, with beautiful sightseeing. This monastery is on the of the oldest Romanian feudal monuments. Sinca Veche cave monastery is in fact a monastic assembly made up of two churches of orthodox communion, a belfry tower and other two annexe which served to carry on of the monastic life of this place between 15 and 18 century. Nearby is the hermitage of Saint Nectarie. It is a beautiful place to visit, it is free of charge.
