I was surprised.
May 2019
came to Ialomicioara Monastery and Cave by chance. Did not know anything about it except that the way there is beautiful. I loved every part of it. We ended up having to take the long route of 30+ km of dirt road. The asphalt road was being fixed at the time. But it turned out to be a great journey to get there, then, to walk through the beautiful forest and finally, to see the beauty of the cave. Most caves I have been to, weren't lit like this one. The water fall in the cave was fantastic (a small fall) and finally the story of the monastery and the site of the beautiful wall paintings. I would love to visit again!

I thought i's a tiny little cave but it's actually quite big!
It's a very safe cave with plenty of handrails.
You will spend there around 1hr.

No tour of this country is complete without wondering in the mysterious Ialomicioara Cave. The entire area is well kept and will surely impress any traveller who dares to go inside. From underground waterfalls to ancient fossils, this attraction is guaranteed to have something for everyone

This is a must visit place if you are in the area. In front of the cave is a small church that can be visited too. The entry fee is $2 which in my opinion is way to small compare with the beauty of the cave. The round trip is 1 and 1/2 mile and takes from one hour up to half a day based on how many pictures you take. You don’t have a guide but the path is marked and lit well. This is one of the few caves in the country that has a waterfall and you can see it. The temperature is around 6 degrees Celsius and humidity 80-100%. They provide helmets for free at the entrance which I recommend, some passages are narrow and around 3 feet tall.

More than 1 km long. Impressive views. Very well built to accommodate safe visits. Highly recommendable. Too bad the road to there is so tough.

The church in the cave! Who’s idea is that? No one knows the reason why this church is in the cave. It’s so strange and interesting to see it. The entrance to the cave is very cheap (10lei per adult and 5lei per child). The cave is massive with a small and a big rooms. Some parts of it are quite tide or with low sealing. For this reason you are welcome to wear a helmet which is optional and free of charge. The legend says it was a bears cave. For a families with a very small kids or people with a fear of high maybe it’s not suitable as it’s has many stairs and some of them are quite high. Please take your jacket with you as inside the cave is just +6C. It is worth to visit! Definitely i recommend. For the people without the car maybe it would be difficult to get there but people in Busteni arranging the trips to all visiting places.
