It's a place for worship, for a bit of peace of mind and to enjoy the scenery. It's better to go there when there are not so many tourists around, it gets way overcrowded... Everyone behaves properly, but having too many people in the same place it's difficult to swallow.

A really gorgeous place to visit. Go even if you’re not in the area. This is an incredibly nice monastery on a seriously beautiful mountain

If you can, make an effort to stop here. There is a lovely story of how the Monastery was created by a vision a monk had only a couple of decades ago. The different churches and buildings on the grounds are beautiful, as are the gardens and grounds surrounding the monastery buildings.

We also enjoyed seeing the menagerie of birds and other animals that were kept on the property. This was a good sideshow for the kids (teens and school aged) to balance some of the really interesting religious art.

The monastery was beautiful. This would be a great place for kids since there are many animals on the property to look at.

A beautiful monastery away from civilization. Easy to access by foot or by car, and when you arrive you will feel blessed. The vision of priest Gherotie Puiu came out amazing, starting from a small wooden church. A clean place and nicely maintained where you don’t feel that the religion is a business. Take your time and visit this place at least once to find peace and relaxation.
