We drove up a high hill to view the city from above but it was raining and the trees mostly blocked the view. There appeared to be a service going on. At nearly 500yearsold, this monastery is in excellent condition. Thefrescoes are mostly gone though....More

This monastery a little distance out of the city is a beautiful and quiet place. The church is a great sight, with its distinct architecture and the quiet low-light interior contains the typical Orthodox church interior with ikons, illustrations and artefacts.

This monastery is located on Galata Hill. The panorama from here is beautiful, but are few dry trees which blocks the view. The church, tower and walls are from XVI century and they are in the list of historical monuments in Romania.

Less trafficked than some of the other monasteries and so less crowded. It's a nice monastery and I recommend a visit. I liked the seating area outside the church.

I briefly visited this monastery with my husband and I very much enjoyed walking the grounds, looking at the scenic view of the city bellow. The monastery itself us gorgeous and has some 500 years old decor and ceiling paintings that must be seen.
