It is said to be the oldest orthodox church in Romania still standing. You can see a mix of building materials in its walls, including Roman columns. We arrived there a little bit after 9am, but the church was closed and we couldn't visit inside.

This place will impress you with its age and history, structure and simplicity. It's a great piece of architecture hundreds years old, used as a temple, church and surrounded by a graveyard.

We came here at sunset. The church was no longer open, so we couldn't visit inside, unfortunately. However, the building impressed us. Worth a visit.

It's called the firs stone-made church in Romania so it's a must see attraction when visiting Hateg county. I had a strong and strange feeling entering this beautiful church.

Although it is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, the origin of the church is enveloped by mystery. It seems to date back to the pre-Christian era, being the only place in Romania where religious services have been held since its inception.

A very old church. It's small and made of stone in the III-rd century. Not in the best state but definitely worth seeing. Easily accessible.
