Lovely little monastery. Got 2 sections. A new and older part. Worth a 30-40 min stop to see it all. We saw a service which was nice. Would recommend.

This is worth a quick visit if you find yourself in Sinaia. It wont take long to see it, but the old church is worth seeing. The fresco painting is very good. It houses one of the earliest books with the romanian language a bible

It's a place worth visiting. Unfortunately we went there in march and the museum was closed but we admired the church. It's a peaceful place.
