I was injured during a visit to Romania last fall (my own fault), but as we drove back to Bucharest from Maramures, I asked my guide to stop here. I could not leave Romania without seeing this amazing building. It defies any conventional architectural label - the towers are truly unique and the mandalas on the side of the building are very curious (why were they put there?) The interior defies description - the floor to ceiling frescoes are amazing, as are the tombs of Romania's rulers, and we even received a blessing while there (I needed one badly at that time!) Lovely, historical site, set in a grove of trees. Just sorry we missed seeing Horezu, but there's always a next time!
