St. Andrew is the one who brought Christianity to this land. I had the opportunity to visit the cave where he lived on a scorching day of July. Upon entering the cave, the silence and low temperature inside felt like a balm. I took my time to look at the icons on the walls, to caress the rocks that have... More

The monastery itself isn't extremely spectacular apart from the fact that it's located in a cave. It is said that the remains of St. Andrew himself are inside and that they have healing powers for whoever prays there.

My review has nothing to do with faith and religious beliefs; these are private to each one of us. It is my opinion about the Saint Andrew's complex: the two churches and the Cave Monastery. The cave is taking you back in time and although illuminated and decorated, you can imagine how it used to be for somebody to live... More

The Saint Andrew's Cave is a place where the Apostle lived in Dobruja. There is a church inside the cave and a bigger one outside (where are exposed some Saint's holy relics). The place is very spiritual and isolated and the road to get there is pitoresque. To get there you should enter Ion Corvin village and then you can... More
