Great for praying and resting. Awfully bad road to the monastery. Not very much to do in Orșova anyway.

A quiet and religious place on the hills of Orsova. Don't miss the terrase behind the church where you can see the Danube.

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...
